GROWTH: A Journal to Welcome Personal Change

Exciting news!!! GROWTH: A Journal to Welcome Personal Change is now out!

Growth: A Journal to Welcome Personal Change is a journal that helps you center your intentions, habits, and goals.

GROWTH is a guided journal with prompts, created to be your companion through times of change. This 144-page, full color journal is designed to be the kind of gift you can give to yourself, or anyone who could use a little extra support during times of change. (What is 2020 if not a time of change?!)

Unique illustrations of botanicals and plants are on every page alongside plenty of space to define and refine goals so you can lay out your intentions! Hand-lettered quotes by revered authors such as Pema Chödrön, Rumi, Thich Nhat Hanh, and Chögyam Trungpa help motivate and inspire.

I was recently featured in this wonderful article by KPBS titled “Local Illustrator Brings The Sweet and The Macabre to A New Children’s Book”.

And there’s been some other positive press recently about my new books, too! Red Tricycle calls She Wanted To Be Haunted a “Best Kids Book of the Summer”, and Kirkus says its “spunky, appealing personality” and “cheerful, lively illustrations” are “not necessarily just for Halloween; readers can appreciate it anytime.” — Meanwhile, Little Muir’s Night received praise from the Sierra News saying “This joyful book is the perfect bedtime read-aloud for the littlest nature lovers.”
