More Poetry

I feel like a cloud
Floating effortlessly in the sky
As the darkness surrounds me
Like a magician’s cloak
I am protected

New Messy Jessy Illustrations

Diane Lucas has taken on the task of creating Messy Jessy in Messy Jessy Gets Active. Jessy’s joyous and creative personality shines through, even in the initial sketches. This is one of my favorite sketches. I can’t wait to see it in color! I’m sure my time in the rink, watching hockey games, isn’t causing any bias.

I love that Jessy uses her imagination and creates her own fun throughout the whole book. She still has her bike helmet on from her adventures on the previous page. This sketch will make a great coloring page.Screen Shot 2017-06-02 at 8.33.54 PM.

Messy Jessy cover FINAL

Anxiously awaiting my latest book.

Children loved Messy Jessy in her debut story.

Now, she is busier and more active than ever.

Follow Jessy as her wild imagination has her tackling what she loves.

From yoga to dance and hockey to ball,

she knows how to have fun.

Jessy’s day continues to be filled with laughter, spirit and … mess.
