Mid-Grade Novel (Working Title: Jake's Vacation)
Jake's Vacation is about the adventures of a large yellow dog and his two favorite kids, Amy and Ben. The manuscript is finished and I'm revising (again), and working on black and white illustrations. I've learned a lot from writing this book (the characters are very bossy and like to invent their own plot twists).

Graphic Picture Book
(Working Title: Catterpiggle Lunch)

Catterpiggle Lunch is a story told almost entirely with pictures; there are very few words. I'm working on the illustrations and refining the plot at the same time – fun!
