What are you working on now?
Right now I am working on three books for my characters. I am writing and illustrating the books so it takes a bit of time and energy.

What inspires you?
Music, nature, color, friends, family and joy inspire me. I can glean a spark from just about anything. I am getting to know all of my characters so well that they wake me up at night with a new story idea or painting.
