A simple book about making mistakes [in art], but not letting them get in the way of creative process.

Or, in the words of Bob Ross, "There are no mistakes, only happy accidents."

The Ethan I Was Before Cover Image

Published: HarperCollins - January 24th, 2017

A beautifully written story on friendship, grief, loss, and healing with a generous helping of mystery and suspense thrown into the mix. Every character and environment is poppin'-off-the-page real, to the point where I could almost feel the muggy Georgia summer, even though it was 25* out and my hands were frozen numb from holding the book. (I couldn't put it down after I picked it back up.)

It's a rare thing indeed when both child and adult alike can enjoy an illustrated book over and over again.

This is one of those books.
