This Sunday is National Weatherperson’s Day! I’m celebrating by sharing my book trailer for Zap! Clap! Boom! and giving a big old shoutout to meteorologist Paul Douglas, who read my manuscript several times for accuracy and gave me lovely feedback.
Paul is not only a meteorologist. He’s also an author (have you read his middle grade nonfiction, A Kid’s Guide to Saving the Planet! ?) He’s also created weather-related software and services, like the 3‑D weather graphics used in movies like Jurassic Park and Twister. Needless to say, he’s super busy, and I’m grateful for his time and expertise.
