I’ve written some children’s books.
I’m ridiculously proud of them.
So this week, I took the next step and approached the best illustrator I know to help me bring them to life. I can honestly say that there is nobody else I would rather work with on this project and so I was delighted that they have agreed to hop on board!
Writing books for children isn’t like just writing poems or even adult fiction. Whilst the words are important, to make the thing complete, the visuals are going to be a key part of the finished books’ appeal. It’s a nerve wracking moment sharing your stories with other people, yet I knew it was in the hands of a very talented creative who I trust and whose work I have admired for years.
Seeing the initial original sketches for the first time was a very emotional moment for me; everything I had hoped for and then some. Words are my thing, and I was speechless! I cannot wait to hold the finished book in my hands and share it with the world! So watch this space!
More details to follow as the project progresses!
