Children’s Books

My passions have always been art, reading and writing. As a child, these are the activities that took up most of my time. Growing up in the North, I could be found curled up next to the floorboard vent, soaking in the heat and the words in my favorite books.

I loved each and every Oz book, classic fairy tales, the Narnia books, the Borrowers, the entire Mary Poppins series, and so many more. Harriet the Spy was a favorite that inspired me to start writing in notebooks and journals.

My pre-teen years were spent reading serials such as Nancy Drew, and all the science fiction I could find, especially Ray Bradbury and Isaac Asimov. There are too many books that inspired me as a young adult to list. I am truly grateful for the gift of books and reading.

My love for at continued to grow throughout my life and it is what I chose to study. After a successful career as an art director for a large corporation, I decided to stay at home with my kids and was able to reinvent myself as a fine artist.

But I always loved to create art that tells a story, and through my children, I re-discovered my love for the world of children’s literature. It was a natural progression to try and enter this challenging world. I’m proud to say I can now add author-illustrator to my resume, a long-time dream. I have illustrated two books, Rainbow of Friendship and I Have A Voice, both by Joni Klein-Higger, and have written and illustrated Pinkie McCloud which They are all available on Amazon or
