Today I am starting my account of a book in progress. The book is a story about a monk in a monastery in France in the Middle Ages. I have been working for some time on the story already, but haven’t been ready to begin this account of my progress until now.
I first heard from the art director, Gayle Brown, in July of 2011. She had this manuscript and thought I might be right to do the illustrations. She’d seen other picture books I had done, in particular, Come to the Castle by Linda Ashman.
