Hi there, thanks for visiting!

I’m Sheri Hoyte and I am an aspiring picture book author. Reading and writing have always been a large part of my life, ever since childhood. Writing a book of ABC’s as an elementary school project set the course for my future, though it would take decades to realize. As a child, I always had a book in my hand and a pile of books waiting to be read.  Not much has changed.

I’m in what I like to call the research stage of my journey – blogging my way through 500 picture books, taking a few writing courses, and reading everything I can get my hands on about the art of writing for children. It’s been an exciting journey so far. I hope you’ll join me.

For now the majority of my posts will include picture book reviews, articles about writing and all things kid-lit. I’ll also through in the occasional regular book reviews (as in reviews for grown-up books). As I progress along the path of becoming a published author I hope to share some of my writing with you.

Picture book authors: If you’d like a review of your picture book, please check out my review policy page. I’d love to read as many of your books as I can!
