I'm a writer and illustrator who loves making books for kids, including the Galore series, illustrated by Bob Staake. I've written a bunch of gift books and nine trillion greeting cards (give or take) for companies like Hallmark, American Greetings, Portal Publications, and Papyrus. A Tree for Mr. Fish, my second book as both author and illustrator, debuts summer 2021. I also love making realistic art, mostly in pencil and charcoal.
