Voyagers Author Yvonne Ventresca’s “Pandemic” – A Great Read for This Trying Time

Currently the IWSG Anthologies blog is featuring posts from the winning authors in this year’s IWSG anthology VOYAGERS:  The Third Ghost.

This week’s post features Yvonne Ventresca, the author whose short story “The Third Ghost” won the top honour in the Voyagers anthology, giving the book its title and cover.  Yvonne is sharing the backstory to her award-winning young adult novel Pandemic., which was written before the current Covid-19 pandemic, but her research into the Spanish Flu crisis proved invaluable – and chilling.

Sherry’s Mayan Adventure

Well, Bubba and Squirt’s Mayan Adventure. So, congratulations to author Sherry Ellis.

Louise lays out a plan to create a user-friendly teacher’s guide that you can use during school and library visits, in presentations at conferences, or as an exhibiter at industry events.
