Happy New Year 2018!  What are your creative goals this year? Mine are

2. FOCUS on my writing and illustrating. Specifically, I hope to finish my MG manuscript in the early part of the year, write/revise 2-3 PB manuscripts, and work on my portfolio.

And a giveaway! To celebrate the new year, I'm giving away a signed copy of my picture book, A Morning with Grandpa.
