Susan Taylor Brown - Writing About Families

"A family story can involve any range of family members, just two or a whole slew!," adds Samantha McFerrin, editor at Harcourt Children's Books.
"In a story about an individual you can have a very character-driven story, which doesn't mean a family story can't have a strong lead character," says McFerrin. "I think family stories that involve issues really bring the whole family into the spotlight," says McFerrin. "I think it's shifting toward unconventional families," says McFerrin, "because that market has broadened some. "Families are important subjects for books for young readers and they make for great, great stories," says McFerrin.
