Lisa McCormick, Newspaper Journalist and Children’s Book Author

“Eileen Robinson is simply the best editor any children’s author could have the good fortune to meet and work with on a project.

She’s a phenom­e­nal editor who has an uncan­ny abili­ty to bring out the best in every writer. Her knowl­edge of writing for children– in a way that inspires their imagi­na­tions — is incredible.

I thought my 20 years as a journal­ist taught me how to write a tight, engag­ing story. Working with Eileen on five biogra­phies opened my eyes — and mind — to a whole new world of writing. It’s a more creative world where you can take children on an excit­ing, fact-filled adven­ture – in less than 400 words.

Eileen’s enthu­si­asm for the craft of writing for children is inspir­ing. Her energy is conta­gious. And her kindness and compas­sion for her writers is unprece­dent­ed in this industry.

Any children’s writer who wants to improve his or her craft should run — not walk — if they have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to work with Eileen Robinson.”
