I wrote this post when King of Bad first published. But I thought I'd run it now since I've written another anti-hero. Writing a good bad guy is an interesting journey.

Three Times a Charm is a weekly feature that spotlights
authors, illustrators, bloggers, agents, editors or promoters from the
publishing industry. This week author and editor, Kathy Sattem Rygg joins us. Since
she is the Editor-in-Chief at www.Knowonder.com
and I’m a staff writer there, I feel like she’s kind of my boss. So if you see
a couple ‘yes ma’ams’ you’ll understand why. Mrs. Rygg – or can I call you Kathy, tell us a little
about yourself. I am children’s author and freelance writer/editor. I
earned a degree in magazine journalism from Iowa State University and worked
for several Fortune 500 companies in Marketing/Public Relations. I also worked
at the McGraw-Hill Companies’ Business Publications Division in New York City
and was the Editor-in-Chief of Women’s Edition magazine in Denver,
CO. I am currently the Editor- in-Chief of the children’s online magazine knowonder! and live in Omaha, NE., with
my husband and two children.
