Welcome to my website!

I am an author and illustrator of more than 100 children's books. I live in Warner, New Hampshire, with author Steven Lindblom and a lot of chipmunks and squirrels. Our daughter Jada is all grown up and living out west.

I like to do lively and funny illustrations the best, but I have been illustrating for a long time and I think I have tried to draw just about everything by now! I love to illustrate non-fiction books because the research is fun to do. But many of my books are picture books or books for young readers. An awful lot of my books are about babies, mice, dogs or cats - which is odd because I don't have any of those. Lately I've enjoyed doing more writing, especially non-fiction

Here I am at my desk in its typically messy state:

I love our house. It's at the top of a hill on a dirt road and up a long driveway past a field. Steve and I designed and built the house many years ago. It has shingles in the peaks shaped like bunnies, a fox, and mice. From my studio window there's a distracting view of the mountains and valley. Of course, I never look out the window because I'm too busy drawing or singing along with the radio.
