Writing and Illustrating is solitary work! Critique groups are a lifeline to others who who are happy to discuss how many elephants might fit into the back of a dump truck, what costumes monkeys might wear for Halloween, special pens, fonts, contracts and PUBLISHERS! Here are a few websites of friends and colleagues.
Liza is an author of middle grade and young adult fiction and non-fiction. Many years ago we started a writer’s group.
Matt is an author/illustrator of children’s picture books and middle-grade novels.

Tracey is another member of our illustrator crit. group. She writes and illustrates picture books with lovely free-wheeling watercolors.
Catherine Stock is an author, illustrator and book designer. She designed my book, The Robbery at the Diamond Dog Diner. The cover of that book is one of my favorites! Check out her watercolor workshops in France. I went a few years ago; it’s an experience not to be missed!
Author-Illustrator of some favorite picture books. The quirky humorist of our illustrator group who (tries) to keep us all in line.
