On this page you'll find four books (a fifth is on its way!), and in each one you'll find friendship, adventure, a hint of danger, and more than a little bit of courage when it is needed the most. 

You will not find horses, simply because I cannot draw their legs.


The Sea in the Way

2022, Greenwillow Books

Badger lives far from Bear, with the sea in the way. But the sea says it will let her cross, if she brings it something nice.

How can anything be nice, in this place without Bear?

It turns out that when you take the time to really look, there is so much to discover. Nice things. New things. Even friends.

'Dreamy, smart waves of love, longing, listening, and learning.' -Kirkus starred review

Freda and the Blue Beetle

'Gilmore's fantasy is both startling and believable' - Publishers Weekly

'This story about thinking for oneself is sweetly quirky and far from saccharine' - Kirkus

And a thank-you!

When it comes to the process of creating a picture book, there are many people involved from beginning to end. I've been lucky enough to work together with my brilliant and fierce agent Jen Rofé, and  the teams at Owlkids Books and Greenwillow, both packed with people who were warm and funny and encouraging, and who work so hard- both long before and long after your book is published. A huge, bottom-of-my-heart thank you to each and every one.
