Halito! (“Hello” in the Choctaw Language)
I illustrated children’s books for several years before I tried writing.
I found writing for children to be much harder than I ever imagined! After taking classes, attending conferences, and workshopping many different manuscripts, I finally felt ready to have others review my work. I’m glad I put in so much effort because now I’m ready!
In July 2024, my first nonfiction picture book, as author, will release! Kindred Spirits: Shilombish Ittibachʋffa.
A true story written in verse, of past and present generosity shown between four Nations; Choctaw, Irish, Navajo and Hopi.
I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed the writing process.
Yakoke, (Thank you)
