Everybody get excited! Slipper the Penguin: A Story about Embracing Neurodivergence is coming SOON (release date TBA). I am so thrilled to share that Abby Lastowski, creator of Actually Owltistic, has agreed to illustrate my story for me. I wanted an illustrator who understood the importance of understanding and embracing neurodivergence who could bring my characters to life, and Abby was so kind to take on the project.
Slipper is a bird who lives in the jungle with her bird friends. She wonders why some things that come so easily to her friends are so difficult for her. “Why am I so bad at being a bird?” When the weather changes, Slipper meets other birds like her, called penguins. Slipper’s new penguin friends teach her that she is a perfectly wonderful bird, just a different type of bird than she thought before!
For those who subscribe to my Patreon, you can get a sneak peek at the opening pages of Slipper the Penguin. Check it out now!
I cannot wait. Thank you, Abby, for your wonderful hard work!
