I’d love to hear from you!


Literary Agent: Jennifer Chen Tran of Bradford Literary                     


Writers who are self-publishing a book or have written a text to submit to publishers: I am always honored and encouraged by your interest! Due to the backlog of my own writing and illustrating projects, I am currently unable to consider your proposal. (Also, most publishers prefer to choose their own illustrators.) I know your work is important to you and I wish you all the best.

Should you be interested, here are some resources I have found helpful:

The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI)

KidLit411–the “One-Stop Place for all your KidLit Information Needs”

Julie Hedlund’s 12×12 Challenge and other Writing Resources

Jeanette Bradley’s Indie Guide for Hiring (and Working With) an Illustrator

Debbie Ridpath Ohi on Getting into the Kidlit Business

Harold Underdown on Picture Book Illustrations
