I'm a day late this week, but I still wanted to introduce another expert who will be answering questions in my ecourse on generating Multiple Streams of Income. Priscilla Burris is a great friend of mine and a wonderful children's book illustrator. If you've ever dreamt of illustrating children's books, you will definitely want to sign-up for my course, so you can ask Priscilla what it's REALLY like to work as an illustrator. Here's more about Priscilla:

Children’s book Illustrator and Author, Priscilla Burris has been a natural artist and a lover of children’s books from a very early age, having grown up across the street from her neighborhood public library.
Her education experience includes degrees in Fashion Illustration and Early Childhood Education.

With over twenty years of experience in children’s book publishing, Priscilla has illustrated over ninety books and materials for children, parents and teachers in both the trade and educational markets.

Her most recent works include the upcoming 2010 release of Aloha for Carol Ann (Marimba Books) written by Margo Sorenson, The Tale of Jack Frost (Scholastic/Fall 2008), written by Marcia Thornton Jones, and Tu Si Puedes, Gabriela! (HarperCollins RAYO/Aug 2008), written by Dra. Isabel & Eric Vasallo. Five Green and Speckled Frogs (Scholastic/March 2003), which she wrote and illustrated, and I Love You All Day Long (HarperCollins/Dec 2002), and Daddy All Day Long, both written by Francesca Rusackas.

Serving as the National Illustrator Coordinator for the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators (www.scbwi.org), and as a member of their Board of Advisors, Priscilla presents seminars and workshops for illustrators and writers throughout the United States.

Priscilla lives with her husband and three children, and Casper, their friendly dog, in sunny California.
