I write picture books that aim to evoke emotion-preferably laughter but I’m all for a book that tugs on my heart strings. Here’s what I’ve been up to:
PICTURE BOOKS – FICTION
Shape School: Shapes discover that they have a lot in common with those that look nothing like them on the outside.
Bottom Shelf Blues: Outgrown picture books plot to save their spines before being boxed away forever.
The Cover-Up: Ellie’s attempt to hide the lip gloss she drew on her boring white bedroom wall leads to a series of resourceful cover-ups that are impossible to hide.
Your Dance: A lyrical journey through a child’s dance of life, from an infant’s drumming heartbeat to finding a partner that doesn’t step on their toes.
Broccoli Dude: When grade ‘A’ Broccoli moves to a house with children he must reinvent himself if he wants to be chosen from the crisper.
PICTURE BOOKS – BIOGRAPHY
Shake the World: Fred and Bonnie Cappuccino had modest means but enormous hearts, resulting in thousands of underprivileged children worldwide achieving brighter futures.
Eyes on Me: Alina loves the performing arts-except the performing part. She devises a way to participate in the class recital, proving that there is more than one way to put on a successful performance.
Wishing Sundays: Effie doesn’t want her weekly trips with Gran to the library and wishing fountain to come to an end, but must find a way to make their trips less taxing on her aging Gran.
