I'm an illustrator and an author of children's books. 

From the time I was a little kid, I’ve wanted to write and illustrate children’s books. I used to staple paper together and make tiny books for my dolls.

When I was in 5th grade, my wonderful teacher laminated and bound our stories and illustrations together into books. It is called The Dog Around the Corner, and is about a dog named Claude and his adventures in his neighborhood.

I've since illustrated many picture books, one of which I’ve written, Soup Day.

If I had written my life story as a little girl, it would be pretty close to the one I am living. I get to do what I have always dreamed of doing.
