3 Fun Facts

1. My hobbies mostly involve things changing from one thing to another: cooking, gardening, woodworking.
2. I once got a mini light bulb stuck in my ear and had to go to the emergency room to get it removed (I was four)
3. I’m an author/illustrator today because of an author visit to MY school when I was in 5th grade (which is one reason I believe so strongly in doing author visits!).
