StoryMakers On Location: Marissa Moss at TLA
Author and illustrator Marissa Moss, creator of AMELIA’S NOTEBOOK, has been making children’s books for a long, long time. She sent in her first book to a publisher when she was nine years old. It didn’t get published, but it helped create her life-long career as a creator. We ran into her at the Texas Library Association Conference and chatted about her book KATE WARNE PINKERTON DETECTIVE! StoryMakers host, Rocco Staino interviewed her about her work, and Marissa proves to kids that you’re never too young to write!
ABOUT THE BOOK
When Kate Warne applied for a job with the Pinkerton Agency, Pinkerton assumed she wanted to cook or clean, but he agreed to try her out as an agent. Assigned to a tough case with high stakes, Warne went undercover and not only found the stolen money, she got almost all of it returned. The Adams Express Case made the reputation of the fledgling Pinkerton Agency, turning it into the biggest, most prestigious detective company in the world.
