I’m told that the first time I was handed a pencil as an infant, I held it correctly. I acknowledge that this is a bit creepy (and unsafe – who hands an infant a pencil?!), but I’ve been drawing and writing ever since (with occasional supervision).
These days, I apply my advanced pencil-holding skills to creating picture books, comics and graphic novels for kids. I am a member of SCBWI and have a fantastic critique group to help me polish my projects. By day I work as a corporate creative, developing concepts for marketing pieces and leading a team of copywriters.
