TURN A PHOTO INTO A PICTURE BOOK!


When I saw this photo, an idea clicked in my head.

I was writing YA at the time and gaining fans for my THE SEER & DEAD GIRL series.

I didn't write picture books, but suddenly an IDEA was there. I couldn't ignore it.
I found a napkin and wrote: MORE THAN ANYTHING ALLY WANTED A DOG, BUT DOGS MADE HER ACHOO.

Within a few days, I had a rough draft. But it took five years and many rewrites before the photograph became a picture book, which recently was published by Albert Whitman.

SNOW DOG, SANND DOG -- my first ever picture book!
