I write kids' books, but I also love drawing, painting, and photography. I live in Columbia, Maryland, between Baltimore and Washington, DC. I love being outside walking, exploring, taking pictures, in the suburbs, the city, or wherever my wandering feet take me. Not being a professional, I find photography more fun and in some ways more rewarding than writing or drawing -- maybe because I don't feel the pressure that plagues me when I write. If I had one wish, I'd take more pictures of interesting looking strangers but I'm scared of getting caught and having my camera smashed or something. With my luck, I'd pick a wanted criminal to photograph.Or someone would think I was gong to post my pictures of their kids on a sordid website. So I'm trying to learn subtle approaches to taking sneaky pictures. Anyway, I'm really enjoying 365 project!
