Hi. I'm Amanda. I am the creator of an imaginary world inspired by my muse Squishy Blueberry, who first visited me in 2002. His world and adventures in some ways reflect my own journey to develop self-esteem and learn to follow my heart. I self-publish under the name D’inkling Publishing and released my first picture book, Reflections of a Blueberry, in March 2014 and second, When You are Blue, in May 2016.
I am learning the art of story telling and illustration as I go. My first picture book turned out to be more of an illustrated poem for the inner child in adults. In fact, much of my writing is as much – or more – for the inner child in adults as it is for children. I am currently working on my third illustrated book, called “Musing for the Child at Heart," which will be targeted to teens and above.
