|Lori Taylor here! I'm a Michigan artist, author,
and illustrator and I've been writing, drawing and making
books and art ever since I could hold a pencil.
I was nine-years-old when I got my first library card.
It opened up a whole new world for me! I read, drew,
explored, played, and built forts on the five acres of pines
and ponds in Clarkston, MI where I grew up.
I was inspired by many authors and illustrators, from Jean
Craighead George to Beatrix Potter and Michigan's own
artist and author, Gwen Frostic. My favorite books as a child
were: Paddington Bear, The Bobbsey Twins, The Swiss
Family Robinson, The Water Babies, fairy tales, myths,
Michigan Indian legends, and more.AND I'm still a book GEEK!
My HOLLY WILD series highlights Michigan's
diverse habitats, awesome flora and fauna, cool myths and
legends, weird science, and lots of ART and FUNNY story
that will get you out exploring, too!
The best part about this series is that it gets ME
out and into Michigan parks, woods, waters, and
trails so I can tell you all about our fun, wild places!
Join me and HOLLY WILD's GeEK
