 :dancer :stars3 I've been sitting on this announcement since early summer. After my editorial review on the pencils, the publisher said I could share my good news.

YES!! I can finally spill the beans!

I received a contract from Piñata Books (Arte Público Press) to illustrate the picture book entitled "A Story Circle." Scheduled release is Summer 2016.

I'm hard at work on the final illustrations now.
