If the Covid-19 pandemic taught me one thing it was the importance of joy in our lives. So I have temporarily put my novel aside, and I have written several picture books. They’re not as easy as they sound. (Every PB writer/illustrator/editor/publisher/agent is now doing a face plant.)
Picture books are poetry, even if they don’t rhyme. Sure, every word matters in a 300-page novel, but when the entire manuscript of a PB is 300 words, each one has to be perfect. To that end, I have created a handful of projects (books and/or series) based on characters who will delight people both young and old. Plus, picture books allow me to freely use exclamation points. Yippee!
