My editor at SynergEbooks, publisher of Feeding the Squirrels, introduced me to a great site - GoodReads.com. It's an excellent place to go for reviews of well known as well as less publicized books, and a great many of the reviews are written by published writers. I am now one of the authors featured at this site and have penned a handful of reviews for books I've had the pleasure to read. Here is a link to my Good Reads profile page - http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/811952

A fellow blogger has created an author interview blog and I had the privilege of being her second interviewee. It was a very enjoyable experience. Here's a link to our Q&A session.

I am adapting my existing illustrations to paint on textiles… and this is a set of bibs that I personalized for a friend’s niece. I painted directly on the bib again, but am going to try painting on woven fabric and then sewing it to the bib, shirt, dress, etc. This will allow me to dye the base garment a variety of colors, instead of just white or cream.

I could have posted this t-shirt ages ago but didn’t know what to say to accompany it. I realize it needs no words… it’s Van Gogh. I painted it for Ava (and it’s been worn, stained, washed and has survived). Van Gogh's work is an inspiration to me as an artist, Ava is an inspiration to me as a person…. By their existence I try harder to be the best I can be.
