I have always dreamed of telling children’s stories and illustrating them, but the opportunity to do so didn’t present itself until my own children arrived.
When I’m not writing or drawing, I like to make animal sculptures in clay.
I have four Chinese Crested Hairless dogs who keep me company while I’m working.
