In the third grade, Kyle sold a drawing of a bluebird wearing sunglasses at lunch. His payment? One chocolate chip cookie! From that first commission on, he knew he wanted to be an illustrator. It wasn’t until much later (he had almost finished eating his cookie) that he decided to be a writer, too. Growing up in Rockford, Illinois, he started putting drawings and words on every piece of paper he could find, and maybe even a wall or two. It’s been a long time since third grade, but not much has changed about Kyle. He still writes and draws stories for anyone who likes the quirky, the strange and the not-quite-so-serious. Oh, and he still draws on walls, too.
