Little Brown Pen + Chronicle Books

Exciting news, guys! I'm thrilled to share that I will be publishing a large collection of my photos with Chronicle Books next Spring. The whole process so far has been a wonderful whirlwind, and I can't say enough good things about the fine people at Chronicle. I admire their taste and talent, and have been a fan of theirs for many years. As a small-town girl from Pennsylvania who moved to New York to pursue a writing career, and moved to Paris to pursue happiness, the one thing I've learned is that going for broke (and occasionally going broke) is worth it. The book, and to some extent the project, would never have happened had all of you not been so receptive and encouraging as you followed along. WIthout your enthusiasm, the simple observation about a pattern of colors I noticed in the Marais in January 2009 probably wouldn't have gone much further. I believe creative inspiration requires encouragement. Some people get it from their families or fellow artists, I got it from all of you. I'm truly grateful for your constant support which drove me to see it through. Thanks, guys. I will be sharing more details as I can. You can read what Chronicle wrote here.
