Michelle Wilson has already self-published two bi-lingual books for children and her workshop at the Bay Area Book Festival (6-7 June, downtown Berkeley) will cover getting ideas, putting together plots, organising chapters, getting illustrations and publishing on Amazon.
Michelle’s books, Girl with a Magical Unicorn and Lost In Venice are published in English and Italian.
In a prepared statement given to the San Hose Mercury News, Michelle said: “Writing is something magical. You can let your imagination go and create your own world. Reading has even more magic. You can live your dreams through simple stories.”
The Bay Area Book Festival also includes an evening talk with best-selling children’s author Judy Blume.
An estimated 100,000 people are expected to attend the festival.
