Bill Motchen a features reporter for St. Louis Jewish Light has written a special article about my journey with illustrator Dayne Sislen to create and publish our picture book, "There's a Mouse on My Head!". Here is a link to the entire article written by Mr. Motchen: "Poem Launches Friends into "Jungle" of Kids' Books".



Here is a short quote:


"Warwick began her journey into the world of children’s books when she attended a critique session held by the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.


“Donna brought a poem to read,” Sislen said. “And I said, ‘I really like this, I think it could be a picture book.’ ”
