Podcast #29: A Chat with a Children’s Author

Ever wonder about the people behind your children’s favorite books?  Wait no more!  Children’s author Norman Tomas, of the soon-to-be-released The Devil in Duke’s Den, stops by our digs to talk about everything from his creative process to eye popping illustrations to life in Mother Russia to “chorror” (the specific genre that Tomas credits himself with creating).  This interview is unlike anything you’ve ever heard.  You’ll never think of children’s books or Sacramento the same again.  Guaranteed.

Bonus features include Will and Chris performing a live #doodybeat of Sandra Boynton’s Snuggle Puppy in studio, and a discussion of their favorite children’s books.  Hint, the authors are Jeffrey Brown and Shel Silverstein.
