    Why did you want to become an author or illustrator?
    Ever since I was a young kid, I wanted to create something that others would get pleasure out of. I just fell so in love with books, I pretty much thought it would be the most powerful thing I could do to create that kind of love for others. I guess I never stopped thinking that.
