Hi! I’m Christine Almstrom, a children’s & young adult author & illustrator. My newest release is a bilingual English/Lakota (Native American) creation story. I’m currently finishing layout for my sixth children’s book (expected release Spring 2018). I use primarily watercolor paint & pencils, pen & ink. I’m also working on storyboard/sketches for my 1st graphic novel – a Steampunk mystery after Sherlock Holmes’ own heart. I’m a member of SCBWI (the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators), EFA (Editorial Freelance Assoc.), & a strong-advocate of CLiF (the Children’s Literacy Foundation).
