To close out this crazy and unprecedented year, I wanted to take some time to highlight my fellow kidlit creators who are working their tails off to birth their beautiful book babies into the world. These interviews will cast a light on the wonderful work of these pre-published, unagented authors and author-illustrators who are destined to be stars!
Judith is a Mexican-American writer and illustrator who has lived in five countries on three continents. As a result, her work is a rich tapestry of multicultural influences. An SCBWI member, Children's Book Academy graduate, and student at the Institute of Children's Literature, she also has degrees in Illustration (BFA), Business Administration (BA), and International Affairs (MA).
Judith is currently seeking agent representation.

Hello! My name is Amanda Davis. I am a teacher, artist, writer, and innovator. I've been writing and creating art in all forms since I was young. Writing and art have always been powerful outlets of expression for me. This is one of the many reasons I was inspired to teach art and pursue my passion for writing and illustrating children's books. You can usually find me hanging out in nature, petting dogs, and immersed in all things creative. I'm inspired by my students, life experiences, and small acts of kindness. I live in the Boston area with my husband and rescue pup, Cora.
Art is universal. Art is connection. Art is life.
