Becca is the mastermind behind the hilarious and insightful advice column, “Ask Becca,” where she answers your burning questions about writing, books and all things literary. Got a question you’d like to see answered? Tweet her at @beccaquibbles or use the #askbecca hash tag.
Wendy’s column, “New Spin,” covers anything that would be considered alternative storytelling, from literary mash-ups to books that put a new spin on classic stories, and “meta-books” that use new media, graphics, and the interaction between words/design for an enhanced reader experience.
Wendy loves interviewing authors and illustrators and is always on the lookout for new, exciting books to cover in the column.
