My Books!

I illustrated a children's book! This is so exciting not only because it is a first for me to illustrate someone else's story, but because it is by an author who lives in my neighborhood, based on an event that happened while I lived here in 2003! I know the streets, landmarks and community well, and it was a joy to recreate and reimagine so many places and scenes, along with details that are special to me and to others. It is sweet book for reading with elementary age children and includes a workbook for making community and connections, along with a fun "can you find?" list in the back.
