"During the the many years I worked on writing my memoir, in-between publishing twenty-five children’s books, I’ve hired several dozen writing coaches, from famous writers to obscure professors--the best editor and coach I worked with, by far, was Karen Propp. Karen worked with tremendous intelligence, and energy, and empathy.
