Storyteller's Journey

The Scandinavian Santa - by Victoria Lindstrom
Tandem Creativity

Working in tandem with your spouse to create a children's book is both challenging and exhilarating. Since Michael and I completed our Christmas story The Scandinavian Santa, a while back, I have done some research on the holiday children's books that have been written and illustrated by married couples. Here are just three inspirational examples:


 
H.A. Rey and Margret Rey



 
Since some of you have followed my storyteller's journey for some time, I thought I would give you an update on The Scandinavian Santa. Michael and I are still attempting to get our labor of love traditionally published before we pursue other options. We are anxiously waiting to hear back from a publisher at this time. Keep your fingers crossed!

  2. Good luck on getting it published! I like the idea of collaborating with a spouse. My hubby is always giving me ideas to write about.

    1. Thanks, Sara. It occurred to me that I failed to mention in this post that my husband - Michael Lindstrom - illustrated The Scandinavian Santa!

      Happy Holidays!
