Thank you for visiting my author page! I love creating memorable books for you and your little ones!
Writing and illustrating picture books is an incredible art form and brings all my favorite things together. It combines my love of children, storytelling, art, and humor. I get to draw funny pictures that make children laugh and learn. I wrote and illustrated my first picture book at age eight and have always loved to draw and paint. (To learn more about my art, please visit www.konkol.com) I received a business degree from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, with an emphasis in English. I was a technical IT, STEM, marketing, and educational writer for over thirty years. The Juried Art Salon awarded me the designation of Master Artist.
My grandchildren inspired me to write and illustrate books for them and others. I decided to venture out on my own as a one-woman business. There was a lot to learn about digital art, creating this website, marketing (advertising, Social Media, etc.), layout and design, printing my books (Ingram Sparks, KDP, China), inventory, and distribution. I wrote, illustrated, designed, and printed Mrs. Wiggles and the Numbers and Who’s Behind the Mask? I enjoy belonging to SCBWI.
I’m starting to publish my years’ of stories and am eager to share them with you and your children.
