In this interview with third time author Cathy Stefanec Ogren, we celebrate the launch of her new picture book, Pew! The Stinky and Legen-Dairy Gift from Colonel Thomas S. Meacham (Sleeping Bear Press, 2023). Cathy talks about how her love for writing plays as a child led her down the path of becoming an educator and teacher. PEW is the unlikely tale of publicity-hungry Colonel Meachem who, almost 200 years ago, wanted to impress the US president with a special 600 kg gift of ripe cheese. In our conversation, Cathy stresses the importance of entering contests, writing through passion, and never ever giving up.
