QQQ: Picture Book Author Kira Bigwood and Taking an Opposite Action

Queries, Qualms, & Quirks asks published authors to share their successful query letter and discuss their journey from first spark to day of publication. 

Picture Book Author Kira Bigwood and Taking an Opposite Action

Picture Book Author Kira Bigwood joins Queries, Qualms, & Quirks this week to discuss querying for eight years, how many picture books you should have ready before submitting, the process of writing a picture book without an illustrator, querying too soon, the importance of making connections, and how making a picture book is truly a team effort.  

Kira Bigwood is an advertising copywriter turned children’s author. Her debut picture book, Secret, Secret Agent Guy, illustrated by Celia Krampien, released this spring from Atheneum Books for Young Readers, and received starred reviews from Kirkus and School Library Journal. Kira is a graduate of UNC Chapel Hill, and lives in Chicago with her husband, three children and their pandemic puppy.
