While it’s challenging enough for adults to write their first book, the feat seems even greater when a pre-teen is the author in question. But with all odds stacked against her – writing a book is exactly what eight year-old Emma Sumner did! As the bestselling author of The Fairies of Waterfall Island, we interviewed Emma and her father Sean Sumner for Episode 29 of the HSP Show to find out which steps children should take to publish their first book. Tune in to learn how Emma took a 150 word book writing challenge and turned it into 20 chapters of her first book with the help of her father, a talented author in his own right.
