About Violet

Hi, I'm Violet!

I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, in the USA. Since then I've lived in New Zealand, China, and Malaysia. Still, though, I'm a Midwestern girl at heart.

Ever since I was little, I've been drawing and making stuff with my hands. Now I use my hands to make art for books—and to write books, too!

Reading is my favorite hobby. I have lots of favorite books. Here are a few:

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart, illustrated by Carson Ellis
When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead
Wonder written and illustrated by R. J. Palacio
Because of Winn Dixie by Cate DeCamillo
