About Ellen and the Winter Wolves

It's May and spring has still not come. Winter storms continue to rage, and the howling winds carry the voices of howling wolves, but only Ellen can hear them. Join her as she sets off on an adventure to defeat the Winter Wolves and restore spring.

Ellen and the Winter Wolves is the picture book I would have wanted to read as a child. The story is full of adventure and mystery and wonder, and it has lots of fun characters with unique personalities. Due to its length, it's for ages 6 and up, though children too young to fully appreciate the story will be captivated by the colorful and richly detailed illustrations.

About Jamin Still

Jamin lives in Wichita, Kansas with his wife and young son. He does creative work for a living and is, in case you somehow missed it, both the author and illustrator of Ellen and the Winter Wolves. He's been drawing since he was small and has enjoyed stories since before he can remember.

Risks and challenges

The book is completely written and illustrated and is in the final stages of design. As with any project, however, there is always the possibility of unforeseen difficulties. The printer I've partnered with could burn to the ground, for example, or my computer and all my backups could simultaneously crash. If these things or anything similarly devastating should happen, there will, of course, be a bit of a delay in production.
