I'm available for school and community presentations.

What's Your Story?
Ages: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
Presentation Time: 35-45 minutes

Where do story ideas come from and how to they get transformed into a book? I share my process from how I come up with ideas to how I create a finished picture book. I discuss the revision process and why a first draft should really be called the "worst" draft. I also share my illustration process with a live drawing demonstration.
