Video Interview

Nate (author of "Nelly Bug") and Aubrey Stout run an art class for kiddos and asked if I would do a quick interview and answer some questions as a guest artist.  I told Aubrey to send the questions, and I'd make a video out of it! Enjoy!

  • First half - Answering questions (fav color, fav medium, what I liked to draw as a kid, etc).
  • Second half - "How to draw" tutorial using basic shapes.
  • Last 50 seconds - speed painting of Gus.

WIFYR 2018

I finally returned to the greatest writing conference on this side of the U.S. for the second time (my first was 2012) with a new story ready to critique! My first book was published because of WIFYR, so I knew this was a worthwhile investment. I took pages of notes, made great friends, and received terrific feedback during my new story's 20-minute in-class critique.

So what is WIFYR?
