New Book Backstory: Full of Fall

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017
Full of Fall, my new photo-illustrated picture book, will be released by the superb team at Beach Lane/S&S  August 29 2017. Happy to say it has received three starred reviews (Publishers Weekly, Booklist, School Library Journal). Many devoted readers had questions about species and details in Raindrops Roll and Best in Snow. (Readers, thanks for embracing Best in Snow, which received four starred reviews and lots of coverage nationwide!) Below I’ve shared more details, in an informal way, for those of you digging into Full of Fall. I’m busy writing, traveling, and photographing for the release of four books in 2018 and 2019.

Full of Fall: Growing up in the foothills of the Appalachians, I came to a love of Autumn very early. I spent a lot of time wandering the woods of South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia. I loved studying fall leaves and leaf shapes.
