Verla Kay


I'm proud to be a Blueboarder! That's the nickname of the registered members of the Verla Kay Message Boards. We're a large group of children's writers and illustrators brought together by Verla Kay, the writer of historical picture books. Verla generously built and maintains an information-packed website that hosts one of the busiest and most well-respected message boards on the Web.

According to the About Me section of Verla's blog: "Her message board page has been getting an average of between nine hundred thousand and one million hits per month since January of 2007. It currently has over 2000 registered members. In the past few years, the 'Blueboard' has become almost an 'icon' for children’s writers and illustrators."
