New picture book announcement!
So, so excited to be working with Tameka Fryer-Brown and the good folks at FSG Books for Young Readers and Macmillan Children's again on the upcoming picture book, Prayer Is. I wish I could put into words how the manuscript made me feel. Can't wait for you all to read it!

I'm writing AND illustrating my first picture book. It's my author-illustrator debut. It's called O Holy Night, and it's a modern retelling of the famous carol. It's really amazing how it happened, and it all started with the illustration I did of the happy Black family picking their Christmas tree at a tree farm. You'll be seeing that family again, thanks to the folks at Bloomsbury Kids US. Fall 2025 here we come!
