I'm excited to share the news that I will illustrate the picture book biography about the amazing Olympic gymnast champion, Simone Biles! Set to be published in 2020, "Flying High: The Story of Simone Biles" is written by the lovely Michelle Meadows, who also wrote "Brave Ballerina: The Story of Janet Collins."
How cool is that?! I get to work on another children's book about an inspirational black woman who overcame unbeatable odds by the same talented author and publisher!
And a huge congrats to Simone for becoming the first woman to win five US Gymnastics all-around titles this past Sunday at the US Gymnastics National Championships! She's earned a total of 16 gold medals across every discipline and is definitely on her way to making even more history at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.
Way to go, Simone! :)
