I was born in Thailand, raised in America. Creating something from almost nothing: I find this fascinating! I pick up blank paper and pencil, and with diligent effort there is soon an image - perhaps a whole other world to behold - that previously existed only in my mind, now on paper. I can keep it forever. It feels... like magic.  I have discovered that illustration is my ultimate creative outlet. I currently am raising three artistic children (the oldest of which is now technically an adult!) with my husband of over 25 years.

I am represented by East West Literary Agency. I've been a member of SCBWI since 2011 and won an On-the-Verge Emerging Voices Award for diversity in 2013.
