“I’m a hybrid author. Traditional and self published picture books. And I have one YA fantasy novel with a small traditional house. I also co-teach a mentoring clinic with illustrator, Kim Sponaugle. Together we give a unique opportunity for PB authors, coming from both the writing AND illustrating aspect.”
