Author Cynthia Leitich Smith's popular blogs, Cynsations and Spookycyn, are currently inaccessible to her for new posting during the Blogger "upgrade." It's unclear how long this will persist, but we're hoping the status is resolved as quickly as possible. In the meantime, Cynthia will be guest blogging here.
Interviews and reading recommendations will be later crossposted on Cynsations when the opportunity presents itself.
Cynthia is the author of Jingle Dancer (Morrow, 2000), Rain Is Not My Indian Name (HarperCollins, 2001), Indian Shoes (HarperCollins, 2002), Santa Knows (Dutton, 2006), and the quickly upcoming YA gothic fantasy novel, Tantalize (Candlewick, 2007).
Please help spread the word throughout the children's/YA literature blog community that they can find out the latest from Cynthia here when it comes to interviews, reading recommendations, publishing information, literacy advocacy, and breaking news. Thank you!
