Greetings! I'm excited to meet you here on Kidlit411. Picture books have always fascinated me from a very young age. My wonderfully supportive parents would gather us around for storytime, where I found myself constantly fixated on illustrations. Being drawn to artwork, I began coloring and collaging my own paper books. Later becoming my own storyteller, making up adventures to keep my friends entertained, and bedtime stories to help my siblings fall asleep. As much as I loved making paper books and telling stories, I truly believed you had to have super powers to become a "real" author!
