A Look Inside

This section of my website shows the progression or finished product of some of my children's stories and creative projects. My hopes are to provide inspiration, love, and stories that will touch hearts.

Where Are You Sunshine?

It all started with a simple sentence. Nearly a year ago, I was sitting in a room and the sentence "Once there was a day without sun" popped into my head. I thought to myself, "That would be an interesting way to begin a story."  I wrote it down. About 5 months later, I was lying in bed and the words that came after that initial phrase popped into my head. I wrote them all down. About 2 months after that, I drew my first illustration for this story. Next thing I knew, I had created a children's book.

I wrote a story that I would read to my students. A story beginning with the disappearance of the sun, a constant, is very perplexing and raises many questions. I wanted to create a story that would encourage children to wonder and dig deeper. I also wanted to encourage creativity, curiosity, sense of self, and determination through the words and illustrations of this story.
