Happy New Year!

2007 was an incredibly rewarding year for me as both an illustrator and as a presenter at schools and libraries. I welcomed two new books into the world, finished three others, and made steady progress on a few additional stories of my own. I visited over 40 libraries, at least 10 elementary schools, and had an incredible time sharing my work and stories with many MANY kids. Among the highlights: the Humbolt County Author's Festival, the NCRL Summer Reading Program, and the Lynnwood Public Library's "Best Book I Ever Read" Celebration.

2008 is shaping up to be equally great, and a BIG thank you to all of the librarians, teachers, kids, parents, and readers everywhere that make my job so fantastic.

Write on. Draw loud. Read happy.

Happy New Year!
