What a pleasure it was to run into a neighbour whose nine-year-old daughter read my children’s novel, The Keeper of the Stones.

I already knew she liked it and had used it for her school work.

It turns out she also loved the illustrations by Kelsea Rothaus, and was inspired to create her own picture!

Such a lovely drawing, and it gave me the greatest feeling to learn how much a child has enjoyed my book.

If you’d like to learn more about The Keeper of the Stones, here’s the starred review from Kirkus Reviews.
