I just discovered your blog and love it. As the author of one picture book, I really enjoy seeing the process of an illustrator! We may be kindred spirits, as I have a manuscript entitled "Desmond Disappears," my partner loves Holgas and my daughter Abigail spells.

Hi Linda- What a coincidence! I just checked out your blog, love your daughter's purse costume. Congratulations on the book.
