Stacey and Me at B&N!

     It's rare that an author and illustrator live in the same town, let alone communicate and become friends. But that's exactly what happened when Stacey Kaye, creator of the ParentSmart/KidHappy series moved to town right after I'd signed the contract to illustrate the books Ready for Bed! and Ready for the Day! (Two more are on the way for 2009!)
     Well, yesterday we spoke and signed books together for the first time at the Barnes & Noble in Buckhead. Stacey read, described the concept behind the books and activities that parents can use to nudge their children through everyday routines without a fuss. Here she shows a "Wheel of Choice" while I draw Maya in a bad mood in the background.
     It went well and was a great trial run for our talk at the DeKalb Medical Center this coming Wednesday. I'm looking forward to it!

     Learn about proper parenting language and the power of choice in, Ready for Bed and Ready for the Day - click the covers!
     You can also listen to a summary of the concept behind the ParentSmart/KidHappy books at Mighty Mommy!

How cool is that! Nice you gals could pair up.

Just wondering what you were using to sketch Maya with? Marker~ Can't tell in the picture.

Also wondering if you have advice for drawing on the spot? I did a visit and a kid asked me to draw an animal, and it was like I went blank......ever have anything like that happen? I had feelings of terror, does a camel have one hump or two, are their ears pointy or rounded, what is the shape of their neck, the whole thing freaked me out...I'm not a huge animal person anyway...but eeks!!! It was a sad camel if I do say.
