Have you ever wondered how organic farmers handle crop issues?

My new picture book is based on a true story about the organic farmers down the road. Since organic farmers don’t use pesticides to stop their crops being eaten, they have to find alternatives. One organic farmer found his solution to some unwelcome night-time visitors who were eating all his crops. His story was the beginning of a lightbulb moment for me, when the urge to create and write another children’s picture book began.

The story is complete and is now in the illustration stage. Here is my lovely illustrator Sarah May from Sarah May graphics hard at work making magic with my words.
