Writing and illustrating
I am currently navigating the pre-published world of a picture book author and actively
submitting polished manuscripts to literary agents. Stay tuned!
I belong to various children’s literature writing groups and an online critique group.
I attend conferences and webinars monthly to improve my craft.
I guess I should have paid attention to the hints that I might one day write for children.
I wrote and illustrated a book in 6th grade. You can see the cover is quite durable!
I think the word count is around 2,000 words-not exactly industry standard for today's market.
I recently reread the story and it’s about eminent domain-not what kids are clamoring to read about these days!
I’m also working on manuscripts I’d like to illustrate as well. Below are sample watercolor and color pencil sketches.
