Introducing: ZULU

HEY THERE...Oh, I mean...hey there.

I'd like to introduce you all to the character of the picture book I am writing, Zulu! Yes I said writing. It is time for me to start considering myself an author/illustrator, not just an illustrator. Enough of all this hesitation and fear! I am going to learn to write and I am going to write the stories I want to illustrate!

Zulu is a tiny exotic bird from the Amazon and all she wants is a little peace and quiet so she can take a nap. But all the noises of the forest are just too loud to hear her tiny hushing. Where, oh where, will she find a quiet place to nap??

I've already started creating my book dummy (or B.I.P. - Book In Progress) and plan to have it all finished by this year's SCBWI Summer Conference. That's a lot to do this summer, but I am committing to finishing it so I will have my very own dummy to show. I will also be sending it out to publishers and agents as soon as it is presentable. 

Keep coming back here for updates on my progress and more cute pictures of Zulu and her noisy adventures!
