My Favorite Podcast!

As a newly published author-illustrator, I am thoroughly enjoying every conversation about creating and publishing children’s books from all angles as well as great life talk. It is so utterly comforting to know that even very successful book creators have doubts, loss, and failures among your successes. You both illustrate how to have the courage to hold tight to my big dreams, stay the path, and that it’s totally worth it :)

Book Joy!

Always look forward to listening to the conversation that makes me think, learn, and hopefully grow.

Can’t stop listening

I was in the audience for the live recording last weekend and enjoyed it so much that I started listening from episode 1 on Monday. Now, it’s Wednesday and I’m already 10 episodes in!
