Welcome to Jumping The Candlestick!
This is the blog of NYT-bestselling children's book author Deborah Diesen.
On this blog, I run weekly profiles of Michigan or Michigan-related authors. Some are authors of books for grown-ups. Others are authors of books for kids. All are part of the great array of writing talent that Michigan has!
My blog also sometimes features bits of original poetry, the occasional workout DVD review, and other assorted odds and ends.
