Audrey Ledgerwood, Illustrator

Illustrator, Audrey Ledgerwood poses next to her original watercolor painting at Barnes and Noble last Saturday. After reading the synopsis of Forbidden, she allowed her mind to drift back to her visits to Scotland, the harsh coastline, the dark forbidding skies, etc. and she went to work designing the front cover. When the publisher saw the painting, Roth said, "Audrey's work encompasses the story, it is an intriguing illustration..." Needless to say, I am thrilled that Audrey's design was chosen, and delighted that she could spare the time to attend the book signing.

Audrey was able to give advice to visitors on Saturday. One young woman who had written a children's book wanted an illustrator. Audrey was able to offer suggestions and advice, and hand over her card. It was a pleasant day for everyone.
