Where do you get your ideas? Ideas are everywhere! I find them taking walks, swimming laps, staring out windows, or flipping through books or magazines. I'll tell you more about how each of my books began.

Activities! A book isn’t finished when you close it. Maybe you’ll be inspired to write or illustrate your own. I'll suggest some ideas about things to do after reading one of my books.
