I am currently working on a story about a shark that doesn’t act like the other sharks. I am using dyed, cut paper to create the underwater illustrations. I actually wrote this story over 20 years ago, but I have let it sit in a drawer all of this time. Now that I have more personal time, I am revisiting it. I think the story is worth publishing, so I am fine tuning the text and art work.
I have another story ready to publish about an over weight girl who is body shamed and teased at her new school. She wants to be popular and loves to dress up as a super hero. Her classmates aren’t very kind to her, but when she suddenly becomes popular, things change for her. The story is about the girl dealing with bullying and her new popularity. She isn’t a victim for very long and I think readers will like her spunkiness and humour.
