Thanks to children’s picture book blogger Julie Danielson at Seven Impossible Things before Breakfast for giving me the opportunity to share my process in creating the book The Day You Begin written by Jacqueline Woodson. Jules is a blogger, reviewer at Kirkus and a fan of picture book illustration.

I also talk about personal stories that influenced my thought process along the way. Check the full article out by clicking the headline of the link below.
