Mostly my career as a journalist and my career as a children's book writer are pretty separate. But recently I wrote a Mother Jones magazine piece about the attempts to diversify children's literature. I found it tough to wear both hats -- writer and reporter -- simultaneously, and found it occasionally uncomfortable to be covering territory so close to home. But I'm pleased with the piece, which has generated lots of conversation. You can find it here.
