Waters of Joy

Alicia Young, my illustrator for Hush, Mouse! (coming soon), can draw anything from a sunbathing hedgehog to a fuzzy bear all blue, to pairs of unlikely but perfectly-right friends, to an inspirational person who comes dancing into your life at just the right moment.

But she does so much more beyond this. In both traditional and digital art, she brings to life the most wonderful feelings. And I can say I’ve never met anyone more positive and overflowing with goodness. I’m proud to know her, and so glad she agreed to illustrate my book!

Check out the full Waters of Joy. and more of her stunning artwork.

What’s Hush, Mouse! about?

A tiny gray kitten named Mouse likes to meow—a lot. And she never seems to meow at the right time, so her people are always telling her to hush.

Little Liz is the only one in the family who appreciates Mouse. Little Liz is short for her age and her people’s ears are too high above her voice, so nobody pays much attention to what she has to say, either.

Little Liz and Mouse understand each other perfectly and spend a lot of time together. Then one day, they prevent a crime, and prove that even though they’re small, they’re worth being listened to!
