I am a children's book writer. My husband Eric illustrates our storybooks, which we publish independently from our home-based studios at the foot of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. We have three children, who offer continual inspiration for our stories. I learned to knit and sew from my mother and grandmother as a girl, and love being able to include knitting and sewing patterns in our storybooks.
