In 2008, Dannah Gresh pulled together a team of three other authors to create with her the Secret Keeper Girl series. A fictional series for tween girls focused on four girls in middle school, they are all friend and the story line of each book intertwines with the corresponding books written by her team of authors Suzy Weibel, Chizuruoke (Chizzy) Anderson and Janet Mylin. Moody Publishers printed the books and I got to illustrate the covers and a few spot illustrations for the interior.
With the success of the first series a second series was begun almost immediately but Dannah changed publishers in the middle of the project placing the second series on hold. Here is a variety of art from both series. Enjoy.
