Book birthday


Welcome to the world, little book. 

Outside it is rainy and dark, which feels like the right day for this book to arrive. 

So many thanks to the people who helped this story become a book : 

To Molly O'Neill for helping me find the one story my heart most needed to tell. 

To my editor Maria Modugno, for seeing possibilities in me 14 years ago when I was trying to write novels. 

To my art director Sarah Hokanson for the beautiful book design. 

To Root Literary for all the magic you do for your writers and illustrators. 

And thank you friends, for sticking with me on my picturebooking journey. 

And my family. Thank you for supporting my dreams. 

I am so grateful to all of you. 
And now! 

Off to deliver some stars to our world. 

I hope you find some extra light today.

The Starkeeper, a starry countdown

First it was two years. 

And then one year. 

And then

1 month. 
3 weeks. 

(Apparently that one tasted yummy.)

Two weeks.  

And then I made a starry countdown on instagram!

And then it was the day I'd been dreaming about since maybe I was born. 

Book of my heart. 

Ready to meet the world.
