Throughout my whole life, books have been my life and breath. My escape when the world was unjust, my magical kingdom where imagination came to life, my open door to places and people unknown. Words are life and books are living. Forget those energy drinks--books give us wings!  Picture books especially are so critical,  not only for early literacy, but also for encouraging imagination and bringing the great big world right into our hands. Picture books foster a life-long love of reading and connect books with happiness. As a 30-something adult, I still get lost in the children's section at bookstores and libraries, and my toddler son is learning to love books just about as much as I do. 

I find inspiration for my books in seeing the world through the eyes of children; there's so much wonder and color and good old fashioned fun! I've self-published three books through Amazon's CreateSpace and while it's a great platform, it's all on the author to write, create, design, and market. Your patronage will enable me to grow as a writer and illustrator and to market my stories to more children and families. I'm so excited! I love what I do and I'm thrilled to share it with you. 

If you're curious about my work up to this point, here are some places you can check it out!

Goals
$9 of $50 per month
With a sweet $50 each month, I can get better quality supplies, organizers for the home office (I'm not kidding--everything is in a tote bag currently), and I can put money towards a camera that is NOT my cell phone to show you how things really look. :)
