The Picture Book Buzz - Interview with Jonathan D. Voss

Have I got a treat for you! Today, I have the exciting opportunity to be one of the first to bring you an interview with the debut author/illustrator Jonathan D. Voss. Jonathan's debut as an illustrator was with Sally M. Walker’s, Winnie: The True Story of the Bear Who Inspired Winnie-the-Pooh, in 2015. And on June 12th, Jonathan's author/illustrator debut releases - Brave Enough for Two. "It’s a big responsibility to tell a story well. I haven’t figured it all out yet, but I’m loving the journey. Maybe one day, when I grow up, I’ll be good at it. But, no matter where I end up, as I go, I hope that joy and pleasure are found in the words I write and the pictures I make." ~ Jonathan Voss
