Comments from the author about writing:
I have always loved children's books, and picture books in particular. It is such an interesting dance between the author and illustrator-- each with his or her own freedom to tell a story through words or art. There is no greater thrill than to see the words spring to life by way of an illustrator, and after years of revision and waiting, to have a finished picture book in hand to share with kids. Picture book themes often function on more than one level, and can make touching gifts for adults as well as children. As a child, I often felt understood by the authors I read, and it's my hope as a writer that children feel the same way when they read my own books.
