I’m extremely excited to announce that my next picture book, Chick Chat, will publish in English (US) and German (Switzerland) with NorthSouth Books in early 2021. 
I’ve written and illustrated numerous children’s books, including Kiki’s Blankie and The Twelve Days of Christmas in Texas published by Sterling Books for Children. As well as illustrating my own books, I enjoy illustrating for other authors.
“I love Kiki—her unsentimental bravado is so wonderfully childlike. I give her my blanket (sorry—blankie) approval.”
—Jane Yolen

Other publishers and imprints I’ve worked with include: Harcourt, Candlewick Press, Penguin, Little/Brown Books, Scholastic, Houghton-Mifflin + others.
Other titles I’ve written and illustrated: Altoona Baboona, Otis, Nutmeg & Barley + more.

Literary publishers: If you’d like to discuss the possibility of working together on a book, please contact my agent Erzsi Deàk with Hen & Ink Literary Studio: Erzsi@henandink.com.
Publishers Weekly reviews for books written by other authors:
(by Kate McMullan, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers):
vivacious, unusually kinetic watercolor-and-ink pictures depict the usual gang of cute cut-ups—the baby with a backwards baseball cap playing a guitar, the pacifier-sucking infant who always seems on the verge of losing his diaper. She creates some good jokes: one baby embraces a microphone—a hairbrush attached to a plunger—while a nestful of baby birds jams along. The very young will savor the babies’ sweet sassiness and their freedom (there’s nary a nay-saying grown-up in sight). Multicolored type accents Bynum’s jazzy palette for a finishing touch.”

(by Lisa Wheeler, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers)
“A porcupine in a petting zoo? The concept sounds absurd, but Wheeler and Bynum succeed in creating an appealing if clueless lonely porcupine who’s looking for love in all the wrong places.”
