First off - I got married!
And when I got home from my honeymoon my publisher gave me permission to share the cover of my first book, HANNAH AND SUGAR. Due out March 8th, 2016! Pre order it from Powell's Books here.
Life has been pretty good.

4. How does my individual writing/illustrating process work?
When I first started writing I read a lot of great books about how to write. (My favorite is probably If You Want To Write by Brenda Ueland.) And I learned from all these great books that stories are usually not so good when you first write them but that with a lot of time and thoughtful editing, you can craft these first wobbly ideas into something great.
