Oklahoma Children's Author - Anna Myers



My guest is Oklahoma children's literature legend, Anna Myers. Anna has published 20 books for children, including award-winning titles like Red Dirt Jessie, Graveyard Girl, Assassin, and Tulsa Burning. She is a four-time Oklahoma Book Award recipient, received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Oklahoma Center for the Book in 2012, and was inducted into the Oklahoma Writers’ Hall of Fame in 2013. You can find out more about Anna and her work at her website - annamyersauthor.com.

In our conversation, we talk about Anna’s writing career, her process, some tips for young writers, and her firm belief in the power of story.


We have a special reviewer for this episode. Anna's daughter, Oklahoma author Ginny Myers Sain, is reviewing one of Anna's books. Ginny is the author of the award-winning YA novel Dark and Shallow Lies and her new book, Secrets So Deep, releases in September. You can connect with Ginny and her work through her website ginnymyerssain.com and you can hear my conversation with Ginny about Dark and Shallow Lies way back in Chapter 7 of the Bookcast.

Ginny is reviewing Assassin by Anna Myers.
