My Story

The story of Hermisio the Stone Crab began in an unexpected way.  I was sitting outside at the patio table, working on some alcohol ink paintings.  As usual, I painted several cards and kept one or two paintings and tossed the rest in the trash.

As I walked by the trash can later that evening, I noticed a painting I tossed in the trash, that looked like a crab.  I picked it out of the trash and the humor of that silly crab, made me laugh, every time I looked at it.  I decided to create a notecard from that painting, to send to a friend, hoping it would make her smile. The poem and story of Hermisio, just came to me in a matter of minutes and I created a rough draft.  I knew right away that I would make a book from that story.  I have never written a children's book before or any other published book, other than an uncirculated, photographic journal.  Needless to say, I have no idea what I am doing and I am enjoying the learning process.  If I seem like an amateur, it's because I am.
