@holleywilliamson Awesome! If nobody else from SVS is there, you can join up with me and my SCBWI local group.
I'm a husband and father (the best part of my life) and an aspiring children's book illustrator and author. I have wanted to be involved in children's books since I was in my teens, and for the past eight years I focused on creating stories, though drawing and painting has been a passion of mine since I was very young. So I have finally decided to pursue my dream with everything I have, and hopefully someday I can say I am an actual illustrator for children's books
