What was the first book that you read that got you excited about reading?
The Cat in The Hat by Dr. Seuss. I loved the language; the fun of reading it. I still do. As a kid, I would read it aloud with great expression to whoever would listen. Often that was my little brother.
What is your favorite thing about writing and illustrating?
My favorite thing about writing and illustrating is the shaping of what might be just a breath of an image, a character, or an idea, into story. My next favorite things are the tools I get to use. I love materials; pencils, brushes, paper, and pens. And more.
