Surprise! Announcing JUST ONE FLAKE
I wrote a story about a kid who really (really) wants to catch a snowflake on his tongue. It’s called Just One Flake.
It’s a little bit funny and a little bit sweet. I thought a lot about the read aloud experience while writing it.
It’s been a dream of mine to illustrate a picture book. With this story, I’ll get my chance. I still can’t believe it.
Just One Flake arrives in 2023. The story is done, but the art is just beginning. I hope to share my illustration progress on Instagram and in my newsletter.
Thank you for your love and support.
