Meet Korrie – She’s celebrating her first picture book. It came out September 1st. Tomorrow it’s a week old. Korrie is both its author and illustrator. Her next picture book will come out April 1st, 2021.
Korrie has a tremendous reach. She does freelance and published illustrations. She writes picture books and young adult novels. I don’t know many people who have this kind of range.
Korrie lives in San Francisco, California with her husband and two cats. I found their photo on her website.
When Korrie’s not writing or illustrating, you’ll find her playing soccer, enjoying coffee at her favorite shop, or looking for a new book. She has stacks and stacks of them in her apartment, but so far there’s always been room for one more.

Part 2 – Korrie in Books
Korrie’s Debut Picture Book
Having a new baby can be traumatic for a big brother or sister. It is for Cassie. Boxes arrive, but they’re not for her. Then the baby appears and takes the attention. But when the loud nonstop crying starts, Cassie has to do something. She finds an empty box and tries to sail away from the noise. Will it work? You’ll have to read to find out.
PS – This book is perfect for families with new babies. It lets the big sibling escape, but there’s something that makes them want to return home again.
Coming soon . . .
April 1, 2021 . . .
You can preorder it now.
Sisters Leah and Lilly have one thing in common – they share a bedroom. Leah’s mess drives Lilly crazy, and she thinks only a wild animal could share a room with her. Imagine all the fun Lilly can have picking the perfect zoo-mate for her sister. This sounds like the perfect book to help kids get through sibling battles.
When I write, I can only have one voice in my head, mine. A little noise is fine. But too much, or worse yet, WORDS, and I must change rooms or pull out headphones. Then I can write on!
