As an author/illustrator I live at the top of a hill, near the edge of a forest in semi-rural New Hampshire, USA. There is a magic wand on my desk and a dragon in my basement. Everything else is nearly normal.

Over 65 children's books bear my name as illustrator or author/illustrator. You have access to some of the sites that feature my work using the links on the left side of this page.

HOW I WORK

My skills are in freelance illustration for children's books. I can illustratrate your book as well as prepare the layout in In Design and create the PDF for your chosen printer. If you wish, I can use a printer that I work with on a daily basis to complete your book and have it distributed to booksellers worldwide. I also will promote your book on my Books page and social media.

When authors and publishers come to me for illustrations for their books, I need them to know that I will work with them only with a contract in place. I am open to negotiation, and payments are made as installments as the book progresses.

If an author seeks to self publish then I ask to know more about the work they are planning and the subject matter. If possible I like to see the text or a part of it.That is the best way for me to tell if it is something for which I can do my best work. But remember, if you wish to submit your work to a traditional trade book publisher, you do not need illustrations, just a really great story.
