Have you ever asked yourself "What if?"

About 10 years ago I did. What if I could actually live my
dream and become a working artist? What if I could write
and illustrate children's picture books? What if I could travel
all over to talk to kids and inspire them to follow THEIR
'what if dreams' too? And then? I made it happen.


I show my art and tell my whole story before I read my books to the kids to show them that hard work and perseverance pays off.


The look on the little girl's face on the right is why I di what I do and will never, EVER stop!

Every success begins with the single decision to try. I did that. In 2011 two if my books got published and a whirlwind began. I traveled all over the country this past fall reading my books and telling my story to children. I can't begin to explain how my soul has been lit up by all the children I have been meeting. What amazing beings! They inspire me so much! I have over 7,000 pinkie promises from children all over the United States so far that have promised me they will follow their dreams - and tell me about it one day! Don't worry y'all, I got the future covered! Just look!


Just some of THOUSANDS of pinkie promises with so many
more to come!!
