Crystal Lamb

Kilgore, Texas, United States


For the most part, I am absolutely clueless on how this process works. I would not even presume to lie to any of you that I am a writer. I tell stories to children, and they love for me tell more stories. When I finish, it is as if a spell is broken, and they all catch their breath collectively. The clock starts again, and time resumes. I like that. I write like I talk, and I've written the story'd just have to read it to believe it.

I wrote one little picture book for my Godchild a few years ago, and have no delusions that *that* represents publishing success. As a Medevial Calligrapher and Illuminer, I specifically wrote this book with strong visual imagery, as well as undulating lyrics.

So...besides the fact that I'm a single mom of a 2 1 year old, that's my bio. We live in the middle of nowhere, and are desparately attempting to return to civilization. Nicholas owns two terrorized goldfish and an an algea eater. They have formed a Union and are plotting their escape. I have every confidence that they will make it out of here before Nicholas and I will. Figures.

In summary, I have written one picture book I happen to think has dynamite illustration potential. I wish I could find a way to illustrate a book and utilize my love for Medevial Calligraphy and Illumination. What kid would get all excited about that? Oh, well....maybe I should just stick to telling stories?
