What I’m working on
I took a long break after writing my last picture book Olly Explores 7 Wonders of the Chesapeake Bay. Life can get pretty busy at times. Now I find that my creative energy is about to burst. I’ve always wanted to try self-publishing, and with all the tools that are available to today’s writers and artists, I can’t wait to get going.
I just released my first self-published chapter book, The Halloween Caper. I’m also working on another picture book about the Bay (I just can’t resist) as well as some middle grade novels I had started years ago. I’m also thinking about easy readers. My greatest challenge will be learning illustration. I have a little know-how, but I also have a lot to learn.
