Aday: Where did you come up with the two lovable raccoon characters?
Aday: I’m just getting my first taste of what it is like to hand my book over to an artist and let them draw what they see. Were you on edge about what Kevin Collier might come up with for your book? Did you envision something in your head that he created differently, good or bad?
Aday: What caused you to include the exercises in the activity pad?
Aday: What are your on going promotion plans for the book?
Aday: What role have artists taken on to help promote and sell your books?
Aday: What is the most challenging part of promoting Rooter & Snuffle?
Aday: Did you start out writing Rooter & Snuffle as a series?

Aday: How do you approach resistant bookstores to get your books stocked?
Aday: Do you see the end of the Rooter & Snuffle series? What has enabled it to continue?
