The Moss Picker

Publisher’s Weekly announcement

It’s a great feeling to FINALLY be able to announce what my next picture book is about. My Instagram post sums it up nicely.

“I have always been drawn to the hauntingly beautiful Spanish moss that drapes our oak and cypress trees in Louisiana on both land and bayou. In 2011, I stumbled upon a few sentences in an article about moss pickers that sent me researching and writing my next picture book! I’m also thrilled to partner with the talented James Ransome as illustrator. My heart is truly happy. 

Special thanks to my agent, Essie White and Kaylan Adair, my editor at Candlewick, for loving this story as much as I do.
