Episode 13-Author Christine Taylor-Butler

Today on the podcast I have author Christine Taylor-Butler. She has published more than 75 children’s books and now has a new YA sci-fi book series The Lost Tribes. A graduate of MIT, Christine holds dual degrees in Civil Engineering and Art & Design. On today’s episode we talk about her Lost Tribes book series, her experience in book publishing as both a children’s book and YA author. We also touch on her time as a process engineer at Hallmark, what it was like to attend an exclusive new England boarding school and we discuss an essay she published arguing for diversity in science fiction and fantasy.
