It's been magical to have 2 books! Sometimes I sit and stare like 'how did this happen'? Which is the question I'm asked often by aspiring authors. My friend Nicole A. Taylor, author of the UpSouth Cookbook, and I started a workshop series called Bound earlier this year. Bound is our stories, tips and secrets on how we worked our way to getting our book deals. We want to inspire others. It's not easy to come up with a concept, find a publisher, find an agent, and then write it but it's totally doable!
We're working on new formats to present Bound and even taking it on the road in 2017! Please email me if you are interested in learning more (or you can wait for the announcements coming soon:).
On Saturday, November 12th, the Brooklyn Museum will host it's 10th Anniversary Children's Book Fair! I'm honored to be listed alongside over 50 Brooklyn authors and illustrators for the 2nd year in a row. I'll be hosting an original coloring activity from My Fab Fashion Style File, should be fun! Read more about it here! Please save the date or share with interested families.
This time last year I was sending off the final edits for 'Style File'! I'm pleased to announce that it's officially off the presses and on a bookshelf near you! You can order, via Warehouse Gallery, or on Amazon! A huge thank you to my husband for his support, and everyone who was involved with the creation of my 2nd book, especially my publisher, Laurence King!
I'm excited to share that I held my 2nd book, for the first time, yesterday! 'Style File' is a delightful mix of art and fashion that you can make your own by drawing in and designing it yourself!
'Style File' was published by Laurence King and illustrated by Sabine Pieper. It also includes line sketches by Carolyn Hewitson. You can pre-order your copy, by following this link, and I'll sign and include little treats when it ships out!
This small town girl is grown so much -- I feel amazing and blessed with success. Thanks for being a part of the magic.
