Say hello to Petunia!

In my last update I briefly talked about a book that I was asked to illustrate. As of today, I'm excited to announce that it has officially been released! It's called 'Petunia, The Girl who was NOT a Princess' by M.R. Nelson. The author's blog can be found here. It was quite a long process completing the illustrations, made harder by having a full-time job alongside, but I'm excited to see it finally published and to have my name on the cover of a book.

The book is about a girl called Petunia. She isn't into all things pink and frilly and would much rather spend her time making mud pies and playing football than dancing at pretend balls. But she feels lonely and desperately wants to make friends. Penelope, a girl who moves next door to Petunia, loves all
things pink and frilly but also loves to make mud pies, play football and catch lizards. Penelope makes Petunia question what she originally thought about girly girls and they soon bond over their shared love of dirt and adventure. 

Here's a little sneak peak of what to expect inside the book...

If you like what you see, please consider leaving a review on Amazon or Goodreads as it'll help the book enormously and I'll be super duper grateful! 


  1. Hi! Just wanted to say I absolutely LOVE your illustrations for my story, and so does everyone I've shown the book. Thanks for doing such a great job!

    Also, if any of your readers want to join in the raffle I'm running as a book release celebration, they should definitely do so- I don't mind international shipping!
