An Illustrator for STEP RIGHT UP

I am so happy to announce that artist Daniel Minter will be illustrating my book, STEP RIGHT UP: THE STORY OF BEAUTIFUL JIM KEY. It’s been a long many months of waiting for this news. Now, I’m just plain giddy.

Daniel Minter is the 2013 recipient of a Coretta Scott King Honor for book illustration, he’s also a fine artist of works featured in many galleries, and he’s the creator of the 2004 and 2011 Kwanzaa stamp for the U.S. Postal Service. He has accomplished so much and has been involved in so many amazing organizations, I encourage you all to check out his website and his illustrated books.

I’m so very excited to see how he brings Doc and Jim to life through his art.
