I’ve been so lucky as I’ve started working my way into the world of freelancing writing. I’ve worked with great editors, who are also fun and interesting people in their own right, and have enjoyed both the writing and the conversations that come up around other things. This piece started off as an e-mail exchange about a book series I love, moved on to great books that also incorporate sports, and finally turned into an quick guide to great books for active kids. And a day I get to mix my love of children’s literature with my love of sports and adventure? That’s a great day!
