My name is…
I am… an author/illustrator/animator with three books that debuted this year: THE BREAKING NEWS, ALLIE ALL ALONG & PET THE PETS.
I’m also a maker of tiny things, a person who draws on photos, a 2D animator, a mom (to two kids), a kid (to my mom!), a friend, an explorer, a connector of worlds.
As a kid, I was… super interested in animals, reading, singing and making stuff.
Writing is… a way to process my world; a place to consider, wonder and imagine… “what if…?”
Reading is… a way for me to gain perspective; to learn, explore, think and feel.
Books are… the best way to hold a world in your hands. They’re a place to escape, a comfort to hold, a way to connect; a practice zone for meeting the dragons of fear, doubt, loss and disappointment.
Did you know… sometimes the biggest problems can be solved by focusing on one small thing at a time?
I’m also planning to do more school visits in the upcoming year, so I hope you’ll be able to find me presenting at your local school in the near future!
