A book release party was held for the release of our new children’s book, In the Middle, at The Boathouse Grill in Essex, Sunday, Nov. 5. The book was written by my friend, Virginia Blake Frazier and illustrated by me.
The book tells the story of growing up in Salem, Massachusetts, from the eyes of the middle child of a family who lived on Chestnut Street in 1910. It was inspired by stories told to the author by her grandmother, who worked as a maid in the house after immigrating from Ireland. Every tiny detail was researched and doubled checked before I began the series of illustrations, using acrylic paint on canvas.
The book is available on Ginny’s website, www.virginiafrazier.com and also at local shops including Wicked Good Books on Essex Street and at The House of the Seven Gables in Salem.
