   It has been a little over a year since my interest in becoming an author and illustrator became a reality.  I have always had the idea in the back of my mind, but it was when I took my son to see a visiting illustrator at the local library that the idea became a possibility.  John Maders displayed a fun energetic love of illustrating.  I thought to myself, "I want that passion!"
   And so it began.  I took Manders' recommendation to read Writer's Digest, Children's Writer's and Illustrator's Market. I then did what I have done as an artist in the past and turned to my sketchbook.  Sketchbooks are great because we can write words and draw pictures allowing our minds to flow freely. I want my children's books use words and pictures to express the natural world.
   I came up with the idea that we need to have a series of children's books about healthy eating.  My first book is a work in progress.  I am using watercolor to paint healthy food for each letter of the Alphabet.  My book is called ABC Healthy.
