Hi there! I’m Juana and I’m a children’s author illustrator.
Do you have a new and exciting project? Let’s talk!
Featured From The Blog
It’s official! I’m back to blogging.
With LA MADRE GOOSE being released on July 19th, and more books coming after that one, the blog will be the best place to stay updated with my publishing news. Come back often or subscribe to the blog (right).
Now to the reason of today’s post: I’m very proud of LA MADRE GOOSE, and can not wait for all of you to see the book!
Today I’m pleased to share the cover with the world!
If you’d like to reserve a copy, you’ll find pre-order links below. I hope you do :)
I’m excited to share fantastic news to start off 2016!
I’m over the moon, thrilled, elated to share the news that Candlewick will be publishing my first book as an author-illustrator. My picture book, entitled ALMA, will be out Spring 2018.
The book was announced in Publishers Weekly on December 17, 2015. Being so close to the Holidays, I decided to leave this post for my first post of 2016. Needless to say that it has been a fantastic Fall and Winter thanks to ALMA, my super-agent Stefanie, and the editors who so kindly shared their time and expertise during the process of finding the home for my first picture book as an author illustrator.
Hi again! The Craft of Portfolio Making – Post #2 is here!

Spring is finally here and that can only mean Conference Season has started!
With that in mind, I thought I would write a Blog Post Series about The Craft of Portfolio Making.
Today we will focus on the making of the Physical Portfolio. We will be talking materials and how to best present your work for a Portfolio Show or a face-to-face Meeting. When we are done (post purchases and put-togethers) you will be walking around town with a new portfolio under your arm. Let’s get started!Read More...
