Welcome to INK Think Tank's Authors on Call

Ever want to ask an author if they've written a book about something you have to teach? Have you read a wonderful nonfiction book on material you have to teach and have questions for the author? Have your kids read a book that sheds light on a subject and they have questions for the author? If so, you've come to the right spot. Here you can converse with our authors. But first meet us.

Here's a link to our wiki so you can see how the project progressed and how Dorothy's work with the students resulted in fine writing by the children:
