Princess of Princesses, India juvenile novel Kazunomiya: Lasky, Kathryn, and Teri S. Coy had just one week in Houston and was hankering for some good Tex-Mex food, something not available in his new city of residence, San Diego. While we were catching up in the hotel lobby, a vivacious woman strode up to Coy; the two exchanged hugs and Coy turned to introduce me.
The introduction was not necessary. I immediately recognized Kathryn Lasky from her appearances at other conferences I have attended over the years.
Over dinner that evening, Kathryn and I hatched a plan: Her schedule during the Houston conference precluded our meeting in a more conventional manner.

I thought, this is a great story. You make a seemingly effortless transition from writing books for young audiences to books for young adults.
Is that a tough transition? The transition you ask about is not really that hard for precisely the reasons you suspect.
Some books just seem perfect for one age group while others are perfect for another age group. The books find a kind of comfortable niche and the voice-appropriate for that niche or audience and subject matter—just comes.
