ABOUT J. H. WINTER
Julianne Hildebrand Winter (J.H. Winter) has written picture books as well as those for both Middle Grade (MG) and Young Adult (YA) audiences. While seeking representation for her first MG fantasy book, Adeline and the Mystic Berries, Julianne is spending her free time creating alliterative picture books, the first being Benny the Bookworm, which is currently out to agentland.
Julianne continues to hone her craft, talking about what she’s working on creatively, what she’s learned throughout the writing and illustration process, and posts videos and free patterns for creating your own amigurumi, all on her blog, Ink & Stitches. She is a self-taught crochet amigurumi artist in the process of writing her first amigurumi book of patterns.
Her love for illustration has led her to pursue illustrating children’s books, be they her own or other authors’ stories. Her first work as an illustrator, Theodore and the Enchanted Bookstore:
Tale of the Spectacular Spectacles, was published in July 2017 by
Incorgnito Publishing Press. The second in the series, The Adventures of Robin Hound, is due out in May 2018.
My motto is always the more color the merrier the illustration. I am drawn to vibrance and paint splatter. Whimsy and cleverness are sewn throughout my work, to draw my readers in and keep them walking through my imagination.
