While it is moving along in fits and spurts, I have been making headway on the newest book. The manuscript has been laying around gathering dust for far too long. It was written for my beautiful niece, Sheridan. She is currently creeping ever closer to the double digit years, so my picture book may be a bit young for her quick brain but I do think she will still enjoy the ideas it holds.
The story is about a little girl who cannot get to sleep. It employs one of my personal favorite creative visualization methods to get my brain to settle down and drift into sleep mode. I will admit, the little girl in the story has a bit more fun with it but that is only because she's young and has much more energy than this particular writer/artist *laughing*. **Spoiler Alert** By the end of the book, her journey leads her to the perfect place: sleeping soundly in her very own bed with the moon watching over her dreams.
Here is a sneak peek at some illustration details from the upcoming Sheridan Starswimmer (tentative release scheduled for September 2015.)
Being a homeschooling parent for 13 years and an independent author/illustrator makes a person learn quite a bit about a lot of things. Now it's time to pass it on!
