Cinnamon is the story of an Indian princess who is blind and does not talk, her mother, father, great-aunt, a parrot, and… a tiger.
I received the manuscript for Cinnamon around the same time I found out I was going to have a baby. It seemed like such a wonderful project and I thought, what a special way to spend my pregnancy… working on a book that takes place in India!
I ended up finishing the illustrations this summer, when my daughter was 9 months old. I’m so excited we finally get to share the cover image!
Cinnamon will be on sale in May 2017.
