My Bio I've been creating, writing and illustrating my own books since I was a teenager starting out with decorated diaries and moving on to poetry, short stories, even several unsuccessful novels, but I've always come back to the pleasure of combining my own images and words, not always strictly for children, but always in celebration of the power that art and words together can have, something more than one or the other.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
My next book is almost ready. The Wellspring is an original story in the folktale style for young children. Again the illustrations are black and white, this time created with crow quill and ink. It tells the story of a small boy who finds a magical creature and what happens next.
