I attended the SCBWI Illustrator Comprehensive in Orlando on Friday, June 16 and was completely impressed with the level of professionalism and passion for the craft from the attendees and presenters! What an inspiring and fun day. I REALLY appreciated the chance to get tips from the pros - Lucy Ruth Cummins, Art Director for Simon & Schuster, and legendary illustrator James Ransome. A unique opportunity indeed!!! (photo credit: Fred Koehler)
I'm so excited to introduce my new book, Professor Fannybottom and the Ancient Pyramid! It's based on stories I used to tell my daughter when she was young. First in a series, it follows the adventures of a world-famous explorer, his cowardly assistant, and intrepid niece and nephew. Full of colorful images, memorable characters, and Tools for Teachers, this book is great for readers of all ages!
It's available on Amazon.com, in book and ebook formats!
