Today we bring you a rebroadcast of our interview with picture book author Hannah Holt. Hannah shares the results of her extensive surveys of picture book authors (How much do they make? What kind of advance do they get? Do they make more with or without an agent?), advice for prepublished authors, and how she researched and brought to life the picture book based on her grandfather, The Diamond and the Boy.

Hannah Holt is a children’s author with an engineering degree. Her books, The Diamond & The Boy (Balzer + Bray) and A Father’s Love (Philomel) weave together her love of language and science. She lives in Oregon with her husband, four children, and a very patient cat named Zephyr. She enjoys reading, writing, running, and eating chocolate chip cookies.
