Honoring Paul Goble

Joyce Magnin is an amazing author, with great satirical wit and sarcasm. Though she touches on tough subjects in some of her writing, her humor shines through. I was honored to edit Joyce's books while I was middle-grade editor at Zondervan, Carrying Mason and Cake, and I love love her newest book, Jelly Bean Summer (reviewed in Girls' Life ​June/July issue), and I caught up with Joyce to chat.
