It's been a life long goal of Amy's to create children's picture books for publication and this Writer-In-Residence opportunity at the historic Mabel Dodge Luhan House will afford her the time and space to focus on two book ideas she has had brewing for some time. Amy's intrepid traveling hamster character Ginger Small has had a small but devoted fan base for some time and these weeks in Taos will help pull years of images and ideas into a solid story.
The other story features some of Amy's whimsical sheep and a small rabbit who counts them.
Amy is accepting donations to help offset the cost of the trip. Lodging and a small stipend have been graciously offered by the folks at the Mabel Dodge House, but New Mexico is a far away place! You can read more about Amy's plans and see more of her work at her website: www.amybogard.com
