As far as I know, Amazon is the only store carrying the books currently, but I'm hoping the hardcover will get listed with a few of the larger booksellers soon. You can also contact me directly about ordering either of the print versions.

About "Who"

Somewhere back in November, I decided to write a children's picture book...because a picture book would be easy, right?

This book happened from an idea I had while making breakfast one morning. My toddler has been very fascinated by all things kitchen, so that morning he was sitting on the counter, 'counting' the eggs in the carton as he handed them to me.

Toddlers--if you don't already know it--generally like to talk, to talk a lot, and to talk repetitively.

I'm glad you found me.

At the moment, I've just finished my first children's picture book, and I'm waiting for the proof copy to show up in the mail.

You can always check back here for new updates. I will be posting art projects and coloring pictures for kids, as well as information for where to find my book once it is available.

I'll be filling out info for the other pages in the next couple of days, so check back soon!
