About this episode’s KidLit Classic:
Clockwork Angel is the first book in best-selling author Cassandra Clare's Infernal Devices trilogy, part of her expansive and treasured Shadowhunters world.
In this episode children's author Hm Waugh discusses how this was the perfect escapist read that got her into writing her own books for children. We also discuss author's varied journeys to publication, building literary sci-fi worlds for middle grade, and Heather's new book, Mars Underground.
