I'm a children's author/illustrator. I draw silly creatures and think up weird stories. I've illustrated over 135 books, including the popular "Shelf Elf" series, as well as two 9-foot Plexiglas polar bear benches and a bunch of children's murals. Check out "What I Drew in Church," a collection of over 200 whimsical drawings on church bulletins. (When I'm not drawing or reading, I sing: from church choir to a symphonic chorus to a rock band.) I live with my husband David (lead guitar) and barky dogs Rory & Zero in a pleasantly spooky Victorian house in Philadelphia.
