MY CHILDREN'S BOOKS

I am a children’s book author and illustrator. I have two children’s books currently out and about, Drop (2021) and Joone (2013), both published by Dial Books of Penguin Random House.


Writing and illustrating children's books has been a lifelong goal of mine. In fact, I started making books when I was 8 years old!! My first books were little stories that I wrote and illustrated, sewed together with floss, and bound in my own cardboard covers. Sometimes the librarian at school would give me old dust jackets and I would turn them into my own, making up new stories around the characters on the covers. These books were simple, and they may have only had popsicle-stick bindings, but I was very proud of those early works! 


It’s been enlightening to move from my homemade children’s books to actual published books. Turns out, kidlit is not loose or thrown-together—it’s more like a tight-fitting puzzle. You have to get across a big idea, but you can only use particular pieces: a handful of short words, some clever pictures, and you only have 32 pages to start and finish your story. Creating and fitting together those pieces is what I do. I hope you enjoy my books!

DROP

Drop: An Adventure through the Water Cycle is my newest book. It was published February 16, 2021. I was inspired to write Drop when I moved to Florida and was suddenly living under very active tropical skies! I love thinking about how each drop of water has been here, going round and round, since the dawn of time. Drop offers readers an easy and adorable way to learn all about the water cycle and glimpse a bigger picture of water's role in our lives. 

I am now offering Autographed First Editions of Drop!!! I can also personalize it and doodle a little Drop inside if you'd like!

Meet Drop. She's water! And she's seen a thing or two—even dinosaurs. Everywhere Drop flows—and she flows everywhere—she makes life on Earth possible, and has a great time doing it. Have you ever plummeted from a rain cloud? Or taken a thousand-year nap in a glacier? Drop has! She'll tell you all about it. With delightful panache and a steady stream of funny one-liners, Drop takes readers on an adventure through the water cycle and beyond. Filled with irresistible artwork, funny asides, and a steady sprinkle of kid-enticing facts, Drop is the story about water everyone has been thirsting for. 


Drop can also be purchased at any bookstore. To choose from a variety of online booksellers, click here.

JOONE

Joone is my first book. Joone is a little girl who loves every moment of her happy life! She is near and dear to my heart! Joone was published June 13, 2013 and is the winner of the 2014 CLC Book Award from Frostburg State University, an annual award given to the children's picture book that most embodies the attributes of Compassion, Love, and Courage. Hooray Joone!!

I am super excited to be offering Autographed First Editions of Joone for the first time ever!!! Ever since Joone went out of print, she has gotten more and more popular. These books are quite rare!! I have gathered as many copies as I can (all are used, most are ex-library books) and I have inspected each one to make sure it's in good shape. I don't have many! Click on the button below to get one of the few copies left!!


Joone likes the color orange, ice-cream sandwiches, and playing outside. She lives in a yurt with her grandfather and her pet turtle, Dr. Chin, who rides around on her hat. Grandpa teaches Joone something new every day. Sometimes Joone teaches him something new, too, like how to make a daisy chain. Together they enjoy life’s small joys—sunsets, tree houses, and most of all, each other.
