Rick Walton, Author of Over 30 Picture Books, Talks with Stories for Children Magazine Founder, VS Grenier

Ivins, UT, July 16, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Author Rick Walton chatted with Stories for Children Magazine Founder & Editor-in-Chief VS Grenier about writing for children—something this veteran author of more than 30 picture books and multiple riddle books knows a little something about.

During the interview Rick explained why he writes mostly children’s picture books. “I have a short attention span,” he said. Rick’s interview with Grenier was one of the wackiest she’s ever done. When talking about what he does in his spare time, Rick had this to say: “Huh? Spare time?”

Rick Walton also teaches writing workshops at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. He has seen many of his students become published writers. Besides teaching writing to adults, Rick also does elementary school visits. Grenier was lucky enough to see Rick in action.

“His school visits are very loud,” said Grenier. “He spends a lot of time getting the children involved in his different workshops during the visits. Rick teaches how to write riddles, story plotting, and he reads to the younger classes. He really loves getting kids to read and write.”
