The Habit Podcast, Episode 9: Kristy Dempsey

The Habit Podcast is a series of conversations with writers about writing, hosted by Jonathan Rogers. In today’s episode, Jonathan Rogers interviews Kristy Dempsey, author of Papa Put a Man on the Moon.

In this episode, Jonathan and Kristy talk about her new book Papa Put a Man on the Moon (written in celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landing), the process of writing and publishing picture books, the difference between “sweetie pies” and “smart alecks” in character arcs, and her own family’s proximity to the moon landing itself.
