A Children’s Book is Nothing Without a Great Illustrator!

GASPAR_cover_RGB_eBookI took a little break from my legal suspense mysteries to write a children’s book. Okay, I didn’t actually take a break. It was written while I was working on my last book. When I needed a break from the killing and chasing and all that makes up that fictional world…I would write a couple of pages about Gaspar, the Flatulating Ghost. It was really fun to do.

This process was so different from what I usually write and once you finish a children’s book, you have to get someone to do the illustrations. Unless, of course, you are talented enough to do them yourself, which I am not. But I found the best illustrator ever! His name is Zachary Settle. You can see some of his artwork on Facebook. He is an incredible artist eve though this venture is quite different from what he usually does. He tackled it with a great attitude and a lot of perseverance. He was such a delight to work with.

Zack is a growing talent. Check out his artwork on Facebook. His prints are still reasonably priced, but someday they may be worth a fortune. He has already made incredible progress in the artistic world. He started as a street artist and has since turned professional. I look forward to working with him again.

We don’t have an exact release date yet, but I will post it as soon as we do.
