About

The Moon is Following Me is hardcover picture-book about a cautious little boy who’s desperately trying to convince his family that the moon is following him each night. Known to be a bit worrisome and over-imaginative, each family member laughs and dismisses his humorous theories as typical make-believe. 

The catch? He may be right. 

  • No major moral or teaching moment. It's just a fun book that pushes the imagination. As a picture book author and illustrator, my hope is to bring families together though timeless stories that create smiles and—sometimes—laughter. It’s in these stories that I hope to awaken the child within adults though a nostalgic point-of-view and gain the trust of young readers who simply want to be entertained.  
  • This is for all the kids who never see themselves in books that are purely about imagination, being a kid and having fun. For the families who always ask why there aren't familiar faces in silly imaginative stories like Dr. Seuss etc. Imagine the faces of kids who will see it and see themselves. Imagine the faces of kids who may not see themselves this time but relate, thinking "I think that too!"

Risks and challenges

The common challenges in self-publishing hardcover picture books are reprints from editing or printing mistakes and the fluctuation of costs on print, production, storage, and shipping. Because “The Moon is Following Me” is my fifth title, I have built solid relationships with all parties needed to produce and deliver an amazing book with very little to no challenges.
