Storyteller's Journey

Collaborating during Covid-19

For the past two months I've been staying at home like most of my fellow Americans. During this time of Covid-19 I've attempted to see silver linings whenever, and wherever, I can.

One big silver lining has been the extra time my artist-husband, Michael, and I've had to collaborate on our next illustrated children's book. While his day job still keeps him busy (he's considered an essential worker), our weekends have offered much more time at home together; prior to the pandemic he would have been out and about painting plein air landscape scenes on Saturdays and/or Sundays.

Here, he's painting a scene of the Fairbanks Train Station in 1927. It's part of a story that was inspired by our trip to Alaska in 2017. While I won't reveal any more details regarding the book right now, we'll have a cover reveal next month, including the title and an illuminating synopsis of the new Lindstrom Wintertime Tale!
I'm so incredibly thankful that Michael has agreed to be the illustrator for this collection of our children's books. The illustrations are nearly complete!

Have you discovered any silver linings during your time of isolation?
