#BLTBF meet…
Amy O’Quinn!

It’s Fall ‘all! And that means it time for the Books Love & Taters Book Festival! This will be the 5th Annual Books Love & Taters Book Festival and we are super excited! Not only is it a great birthday, we are getting bigger! This year the #BLTBF will feature TEN AUTHORS. Most from South Georgia! What better way to support and meet your local authors?

Today I want to introduce you to…




I can’t remember ever NOT wanting to be a writer. I wrote my first stories just as soon as I could hold a pencil and string letters and words together, and I’ve never stopped. My first published story was about a set of twins—one who was a basketball player and the other a gymnast. (Hey, I was trying to write what I knew!) That was way back in 1993. Since then I’ve had lots of stories, articles, and reviews published in magazines and on websites, but Marie Curie for Kids is my first book.  Writing about Marie was great, because the process involved equal parts of research in both history and science. Win-Win. I also got to delve into World War I, battlefield medicine, radiology, scientific theories, and the late 1800s/early 1900s in Europe and America. Maybe I have a nerdy side, but it was awesome! I LOVE being a writer!

Marie Curie is Amy’s first book…
