Ooooooh, It’s Halloween Officially Available

halloween now avail

I have received and approved the proof copies from the printer and Ooooooh, It’s Halloween is now officially available!!!!

I have truly enjoyed working on this, my third, endeavor with the delightful Barbara Poor!

From illustrating the interior of this full color 40 page children’s book, creating the cover, editing and formatting, creating all advertisements to creating the book trailer, this has been an absolute adventure.  It is always a delight to work with Barbara Poor.

On the heels of our two other collaborations,  The Girl With The Curly Red Hair , and My Trip To The Library , Ooooooh, It’s Halloween follows the ginger headed, freckled cutie on a colorful journey through a parade of the delights and frights of costume choices available on Halloween.

It is always an epic delight for me to illustrate for the imaginative and creative Barbara Poor. Her words instantly conger colorful images in my mind and inspire me to draw. I look forward to many more collaborations in our future!

Introducing Lucy

Introducing Lucy

I would like you to meet Lucy.

Lucy is a character in my debut children’s picture book where, for the first time, I am both the illustrator and the author.

After years of illustrating, editing, formatting, creating all of the advertising, all the social marketing, creating book trailers, and cover art for children’s books, I have  decided to go ahead and do the one part missing to a picture book’s creation, the authoring.  I had been approached to do so on several occasions over the past couple of years. Not to mention several friends constantly asking why I did not just make my own. Within as much, I decided to dust off the old manuscripts I have had sitting for years.

Although I took Creative Writing in high school, and have always loved to write and create stories, (especially for my daughter at bedtime when she was younger) I never considered making my own children’s book.

I have decided, why not.  If nothing else, I will have a hard copy of my own little story for my daughter, if no one else decides to buy it!
