When I am not writing or illustrating I play cello. My dog sleeps at my feet when I practice cello but my cat leaves the room. I sometimes do storytelling with my cello. When I am not writing or illustrating or playing cello you can find me outside gardening. I grow flowers, vegetables and fruits. I have a lots of animal living in my garden such as cottontail rabbits, many different birds, chipmunks, and squirrels. They are all my wonderful friends. I feeds birds and share vegetables with rabbits. I love them and they are my inspiration.
