SIDELIGHTS: Marcia Amidon Lusted told CA: "I have always been interested in history, and writing for the 'Building History' series was a perfect way to break into writing nonfiction. I enjoy doing research and finding the facts I need to produce a good reference book. Children's nonfiction writing is a growing field with a demand for new writers, and it is definitely the best way to become published in the competitive area of writing for children."
