Hi there. I write books for kids—young ones. I also help others write picture books—through The Nuts and Bolts Guide to Writing Picture Books, writing workshops, the SCBWI mentor program, and PictureBookBuilders, a group blog for writers and illustrators.
To me, a well-done picture book is a work of art. But the real magic happens when a picture book is shared—in a classroom, at the library, or between two people curled up on a couch—and a child laughs, asks questions, studies the illustrations and says “Read it again.”
