Interview with Kellen Hertz!

Hello people! Today I have a interview with the one and only Kellen Hertz for you guys! She is the author of Tenney's series, as well as Lea and Camila. Here we go!


KH- Kellen Hertz

AGDN- How did you find out about American Girl?

KH- I first learned about AG when I was 14 or 15.W e got an American Girl catalog in the mail. I remember looking at it and thinking that Samantha Parkington reminded me of Sara Crewe from “A Little Princess,” which is one of my all-time favorite books. I secretly wanted to get her, but I was a teenager, so of course I was too cool for that. :) I also read the early Samantha and Kit books from the library. After that, I got busy being a teenager and it fell off my radar, but I've always really appreciated American Girls' devotion to creating characters, not just dolls, and using history as a backdrop, since I love anything historical.
