news, f-stops and the wardrobe
Welcome to my first blog post!
Why did I subtitle this blog news, f-stops and the wardrobe? To let readers know what I plan to write about in the upcoming months and years.
News? This blog will include news about me – new books and news on upcoming and recent events.
F-stops? Fairly obvious – as a children’s author who uses photography, I want to spend some time talking about my illustration and writing process including the tools I use. F-stops will also include other work such as this photograph taken on a recent, almost-spring day.
The wardrobe? In the first chapter of the first volume of the CS Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia, Lucy steps into the wardrobe and the adventure begins. The door of the wardrobe opens up into an imagined world. A similar step is taken by simply opening a book and beginning to read. I have created many stories in which adventures spring from the imaginative games of children. I will write about some themes of my children’s books and other thoughts on children’s literature.
Thanks for reading this! Please come back soon!
