a bit about me:
Marla F. Jones has read thousands of children’s books. Literally. As a first grade teacher, story time was her favorite part of the day.
As a writer, Jones has authored four picture books. As an artist, she has illustrated five. She uses a colorful mix of media, papers, fabrics and found objects, and layers them to create texture and dimension to her folkart style.
Marla Jones is a member of Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and the Oklahoma Writers Federation. She is currently the senior editor at Doodle and Peck Publishing, where she pairs up talented authors and illustrators to make fun, educational, family-friendly books.
