As always I am woefully behind in posting here BUT - I am very excited to be releasing the first in a series  that I have been working on for several years!  Party In a Book; Spots Dots, and Stripes!
Those of you who know me personally know that I love to throw parties, I love making things and I love paper - this book series combines all three!!! It can be used by children and adults, and the series will be a mix of both audiences.

Available in stores in March!


Catch up with me on my new publishing adventure in Emma Dryden's Blog interview!

Newest picture book Flatland written by David Sayre illustrated by yours truly and published byTwo Little Birds Books. It has garnered a Parent's Choice award and is a must see for anyone grappling with the concept of what happens when loved ones are no longer where we can see them.


Exciting news over at my publishing imprint Two Little Birds Books! Our newest tile Flatland by David Sayre and yours truly is on it's way!
Flatland is the tale of Owuza Flatlander, his discoveries and experiences while on Flatland! Here are some fun interior bits from the printer, showing the way a book is printed so that the pages match when folded, gathered and cut to create the final book.
Look for it in late May in bookstores and museum stores near you!

Heading into summer, as respite form launching a new imprint and turning one of my books into a musical (oh yes I am excited) I will be teaching at this wonderful Art Camp. On an island in New Hampshire we will gather to be creative and connect with nature. Summer Camp without the homesickness and the soggy sandwiches! Art, swimming, quiet and great food...think about it!


Summer is on the way and we are happy to be launching Two Little Birds Books! Take a look at our website here: Two Little Bird Books I'm heading out on the road next week to start spreading the word. If you are planning to be at BEA this year look for me to be signing copies of Itsy Bitsy Spider on Friday the 31st. Never a dull moment when creating a publishing imprint, we've had some issues with getting Spider out into the world but finally have an official pub date June 15, 2013. I am busy illustrating some new projects and will be working with Stacey Williams-Ng of Little Bahalia Publishing to create some wonderful e-book apps. So many fun opportunities have come my way this year, it's exciting!
