ABOUT ROBERTA M. RIVERA
Hello! Welcome to SCBWI Long Island.
I’ve been an SCBWI member for a long time and I have illustrated two children’s books. Hal, the Hamptons Hound and the Case of the Missing Puppies, written by children’s book author, Susan Abrahams. The second book is a chapter books, written by JoAnn Vergona Krapp, titled Missing Treasure Means Trouble.
- Since I was a child I love creating art. During my formative years, my parents taught my sibling and me the love of reading, and encouraged us to paint and draw. Our public library in our home town, was my safe haven, as I read picture books, early chapter books, and middle grade novels. The art and words were magical to me.And, now in this social media age of apps and digital books, children’s books are still popular, and more than ever! Creating quality children’s books is my mission in life and help foster a new generation of book creators and readers.
