April Jones Prince is Here! Author, Agent, Mother, Teacher, Friend, Mentor, Creative Soul.

April Jone Prince is the one who discovered my voice and sold my first books to the publishers.
I feel rich to have a friend like her in my life.
April's book You Are A Reader, You Are A Writer is out on August 3, 2021
Let's read what the tough and prestigious reviewers at Kirkus Review say about her new book.
A Starred Review! Woot.
★ ”This cleverly designed picture book is actually two rhyming stories, bound back to back. The stories meet in the middle in a page with text printed in a circle that repeats the mantra that “readers and writers and writers are readers.” This innovative design reinforces the book’s central ideas: that reading and writing go together and that, fundamentally, every child is capable of creativity. . . . Taken together, the text and pictures articulate a quirky, inspirational call to creative action that is sure to empower young children to explore the wild world of words. A cleverly designed, engaging picture book about the joy of text.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
Congratulations dearest April on your latest book.
Dear listeners, in this episode we talk about different genres within the Children's Picture Book Genre. Listen to learn about April, how she became an author and her path to creativity. Because April teaches at a great school for illustrators, she also gifts us with many morsels of wisdom unique to her nurturing nature. Hope you listen and enjoy.

Lindsey Yankey Is Here! Artist - Illustrator - Author - Creative

Years after I wrote and submitted My Grandma and Me to my publisher, I met Lindsey. Sometimes it takes a while for a publisher to find just the right person for the very important illustration section of any picturebook. 

I couldn't be more thrilled to meet her through this process. We are definitely a good match. 

In this episode, we talk about life, creativity, and offer a glimpse into the way we worked on My Grandma and Me.

You can see Lindsey's art and read more about her on her website -

Thank you for listening. Please follow me on my Instagram pages, javaherbinwriter, and Mina Javaherbin Talking Here, where I'll leave notifications about my upcoming podcasts and you can share your thoughts and questions with me. 

Thank you.

Martin Dorey Is Here! Author - Climate Activist - Surfer - Creative

Martin Dorey is my guest. I talk to him from the shores of California to the shores of Cornwall, England. Please forgive the little wobbles here and there since my voice hits the satellite, then he'll reply and his voice will hit the satellite before getting back to me. Well, you know the drill. It's a big deal, isn't it? And guess what? Humans thought of this and created it! I'm positive we can also fight plastic and clean up our earth, together.

In this completely unscripted episode, I talk to Martin about one of his books, Kids Fight Plastic. We talk about using less, reusing more, and how his book can help us all to use less plastic. 

It's important to get to know plastic and understand its low recyclability.

Here we also talk a bit about politics, because one can not avoid politics when one talks about trash!  

I'm so grateful for Martin's time. and I hope you take this opportunity to hear him out. 

I'm new to podcasting and I promise to learn to talk less and control my excitement. Thanks for your patience and support. 

Please learn more about Martin and what he's doing to help our planet by reading his books and visiting the sites below.
