I am excited to announce that my new children's book "Who Lives in My Backyard?" is now available on Amazon.
"Who Lives in My Backyard?"
The Creative Process
Over the past few months as I started to gather a wide selection of nature photos, I found myself thinking of children's books. It isn't like I took the photos specifically for a children's book, it's more like they announced themselves and I had no choice but add the text and bind them into a tidy little book.
So, if you are wondering which comes first the words or the photos, this is a case where the photos definitely came first and the words came later. I suppose one could work the other way around, but I think it would lose the element of surprise and the photos would lack inspiration.
More Titles Coming Soon!
"Who Lives in My Backyard?" is just the beginning. I am already working on a book about the Black and Yellow Garden Spider, complete with full-color images of this delightful little arachnid and her everyday life. It will feature photos of her spinning her web, having a snack, making an egg sac and protecting her babies.
Unless you suffer from arachnophobia, this is a book you won't want to miss!
A Big Thank You!
