"All The Ways I Want To Eat You Up" is children's story that came to me while watching my nephew after he was born, I would tell him all of the ways I was going to eat him.  The images started forming in my mind and I wanted to create something special not only for him but for all of the precious children in my life.

I love to tell stories through my art, watercolors offer a vibrant and whimsical touch to the illustrations that I appreciate and I hope that future readers enjoy it as well.

 My hope for this book is that it will encourage more meals shared together with laughter and a little bit of weird. Have you told a child you're going to eat them today?

Risks and challenges

This is my first published book, but I'm in the end stages with proofs in hand. It was a struggle working layouts on the computer but I'm happy with how the book has turned out. Waiting on the printer is just that, waiting. Thank you for your support and encouragement.
