INTERACTIVE VIEW: Jessica BurkhartPublished by LeadMare • Feb 7th, 2009 • Category: Interactive View
Welcome to the INTERACTIVE VIEW, an interview where *YOU* ask the questions. Please give a warm Girls Horse Club welcome to Jessica Burkhart, horse girl and author of the Canterwood Crest book series. Jessica will respond to your questions from now until Friday February 13th.
To get started, read the intro and instructions below. Have fun!
INTRO: Horse-Crazy Jessica started writing at age 14 to fill a void after spinal fusion for severe scoliosis meant she could no longer ride horses. While building her author’s resume with more than 100 articles as a freelancer for teen magazines, Jessica started college at age 16. As a senior at Florida State University she signed up to write a novel in 30 days as part of the National Novel Writing Month. By the time she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BA in English at age 20, she had an agent and a book deal with Simon & Schuster. Go horse girls!
- Please be aware of our Ground Rules, then simply scroll down and enter your question in the box that says ‘BE HEARD IN THE HERD’.
- Keep in mind this is not a live interview, it’s more like an ongoing party with people coming in and out each day. Jessica will check in periodically and respond to your questions in her own words. Girls Horse Club will moderate.
UPDATE FEBRUARY 14th, 2008: Questions are now closed. Many thanks to Jessica Burkhart for visiting our virtual barn and answering your questions. Please read the comments for plenty of inspiration and great advice from this talented author!
