CAROL: Why do you think he signed you on?
And from Cyle's point of view: "Jean is an amazing writer with a great voice. I am honored to represent her."
CAROL: Was this the project you originally subbed to him, or were there others?
CAROL: How long did it take before you received an offer?
JEAN: One year later, Cyle and Little Lambs Books started discussing the contract. I actually signed with them in September, 2017.
CAROL: What was the inspiration behind the Four Seasons stories?
CAROL: What input did you receive from critique buddies?
