Next, Rachel visits with award-winning author and columnist, Ann Cannon, about her favorite form of writing – children’s books. She often bases them on real life – drawing on experiences with friends and family or on the lives of historical characters. Cannon is the author of a number of books for young readers including Charlotte's Rose, The Loser's Guide to Life and Love and The Chihuahua Chase. Her latest picture book, called Sophie's Fish, received a starred review in Kirkus. In addition to writing books under the name of A. E. Cannon, Ann is a weekly columnist for the Salt Lake Tribune, a bookseller at The King’s English Bookshop, and a sometime creative writing instructor.
