Episode 16: Tweens and Teens, The Trauma of Changing Schools, and Not Curating the Truth with Middle Grade Author Lisa Greenwald

Lisa Greenwald joins me in the MILK studio to talk about writing books for tweens and teens, fitting it all in as a mom and a writer, and not feeling guilty all the damn time. Hard!

She has 2 new books out this summer, “Kale, My Ex, and Other Things to Toss in a Blender,” which is her first young adult novel, and “11 Before 12,” which is part one of a middle grade duology.

Lisa takes questions from a tween superfan, talks about writing books during nap and school time, and finding pleasure and inspiration in watching people interact. Check her out at lisagreenwald.com
