On April 11, 2015, Patty Lakin gave a seminar on biography writing to the SCBWI Japan members. Transatlantic Agency is very pleased that SCBWI Japan has granted us permission to share an excerpt of the fantastic review that one member wrote about Patty’s presentation.

A prolific writer, Patty, at a youthful 71 years, has authored a number of biographies, including Steve Jobs: Thinking Differently, and six books for the noteworthy “Ready-to-Read” series, all published by Simon & Schuster.
