This is a story about mice. I'm calling it The Sixteenth Story, and it begins when a terrifying baby mouse, named Mega, washes up on an island inhabited by other mice. Mega loves zapping her enemies with her laser eyes, whipping them with her baby blanket, and hitting them with her death rattle (like a baby rattle, but more deadly). And almost everyone is Mega's enemy. Will she ever calm down? Will the mice discover the mystery of their world or at least find the Legendary Yo-Yo Bean Bush? There's a novel in the making to answer those questions and many more.

A short history: as teens, my brother and I created the The Sixteenth Story world. In my early 20's, I completed the rough draft and began sketching ideas for illustrations. Last year I revisited the draft and am now turning it into a second draft, with input from my writers' critique group. I'll be posting all the illustrations I'm creating for the story. Thanks for joining me on this project. I'm excited to see the finished book, and your support will help me get there.

From time to time, I may post other artwork/projects I'm working on as well.
