When I was little my favorite book was Sylvester and the Magic Pebble. I loved that story so much I wrote and illustrated my own starring a horse instead of a donkey and an amulet instead of a pebble. “Commanche and the Magic Amulet” it was called. I’m pretty sure my mom still has it somewhere.
As you might imagine from the title it was a complete rip off of Sylvester, but it was the first step on a long and winding journey back to creating children’s books.
Today, my journey has taken a mighty big step forward. I’ve signed on with Andrea Morrison at Writers House to represent me for children’s book work. I still have a lot of work to do but having Andrea in my corner cheering me on is pretty fantastic. I’m super excited to be working with her.
