Genre: Fiction Picture Book
Word Count:


Dear Michelle & Sharon,

In 160 words, ALIEN HUNT is a lyrical picture book that keeps readers guessing, “Quirky neighbor or… alien?”

Brie, Ben, and Bigglebee set out to explore, convinced an alien lives down the street. While the curious group makes new alien-like discoveries, readers are privy to an insider’s view that looks nothing out of the ordinary… Are imaginations running wild, or does an alien live there?

I have included the first 50 words below and attached an illustration sample. For more examples of my work, please visit

I am a member of SCBWI and have been a full-time copywriter since 2009. Beyond writing, making art and music have been an important part of my creative pursuits. I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with my husband, a growing assortment of art supplies, and an untrustworthy but handsome cat.

Thanks so much for hosting the PB Party event and taking the time to consider ALIEN HUNT. I look forward to hearing from you.

First 50 Words:

Brie, Ben, and Bigglebee
Hand in hand in paw
Tip toe sneak
Down the dead-end street
Toward the house that slumps like a shadow…

“Do you see that?”
“Alien lights!”

Brie, Ben, and Bigglebee
Hand in hand in paw
Tip toe sneak
Where the weeds grow tall
Close to the crooked house wall…
