Hi there, I’m Jamie

About 

My name is Jamie Bills. I live in Michigan with my cute hubby and three lovely daughters.

I am on a journey to become a published picture book author. 

Philip Pullman said, “If you want to develop your craft as a writer, READ.”

Heading his advice, I am well into the thousands of picture books and continue to push forward. I love to share my favorite book finds and newly learned writing tips with others.

I would love to hear from you.
