You may already know about picture book author Heather Ayris Burnell's smart, informative blog and website Frolicking Through Cyberspace, where amongst other things, she talks about writing, chronicles her own adventures getting published, and is creating the Monster List of Picture Book Agents.  She also interviews people – and I was delighted when she asked if I'd be interested.  The interview went up today, here's a preview of some of her great questions:

It's a tough, highly competitive market, especially when it comes to picture books. Why do you choose to represent picture book authors?
What elements do you think a picture book needs to be successful?
There is such a variety of picture books, are there certain types you prefer to (or not to) represent?

For answers and more of the interview, please visit her site:

I hope everyone enjoys.  Thanks for having me Heather!


  1. It was great to have you, Susan! I really enjoyed getting to ask you picture book centric questions. Your interview will be a great resource for a long time to come!

  2. I'm interested to read your thoughts. I have friends that are trying to get picture books out there, and not many agents are willing to take picture books on since it's such a tough market. I'm glad to see there are agents still taking on picture book projects.

  3. Heather and Susan: Thank you both!
