Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Charlotte's Web was the first story I remember reading. I never realized how much of an impact it would have on me as a writer until I started writing children's stories. With Charlotte's Web it became more than a story. It was an awareness of the way we, as writers, can use our imaginations to bring the story to life. Whether it's Charlotte's Web or Dr. Seuss, each story possesses imagination that intrigues the reader.
How do you approach cover design?
I enjoy designing my own covers. While I'm creating a story I have the characters and scenery constantly in mind. I create the cover based around the story and what will capture the attention of the young readers.
