My Books

PUZZLED BY PINK is a picture book that I wrote and illustrated, and it will be released by Viking Children's Books on April 12, 2012.  This book, pitched by literary agent Joanna Volpe as Wednesday Addams meets Fancy Nancy, is about two sisters who couldn't be more different.

Here's the blurb from my publisher:

Not every girl loves pink . . .
Izzy hates pink as much as her sister, Rose loves it. So when Rose plans an all-pink birthday party with the guests dressed in fairy costumes, Izzy decides to giver her own alternative party in the attic, where the guests will be monsters, spiders, ghosts, and the pet cat. But some powerful magic triggers the appearance of yet another guest--an unexpected one. This will be a party nobody forgets!

Oh, and there's a birthday party.  
                                                           And, a DRAGON.  

Here's my very first sketch of my main character:

I'm also working on a new picture book starring this little girl:

and her arch nemesis:

And this one about a little fashionista:

Plus, I'm slogging my way through a middle grade novel set in the South which is all about art, the creative process, and lovable rednecks.  

Stay tuned ....
