Book Announcement: ALMA

Cover Coming Soon

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.

  • I’m so happy to hear that you got your first book out there! You are an amazing talent and deserve no less than to see your own written and illustrated books out there on the shelves! I hope one day to be announcing the same thing myself ;) We author/illustrators need to stick together! Congrats again!
