The Author and the Illustrator
Angela T. Baron is the author and illustrator of the children’s books A Tale of Two Squirrels (2013) and Squirrely over Nuts (2010). After receiving a BS in Zoology from Texas A & M University, she started work in the veterinary field. Feeling her creative spark grow while working with animals at the clinics and while volunteering at the zoological gardens, she began filing away ideas and stories in her head. The birth of her children fueled that fire and she began writing for children, using nature as an outlet to teach them about various issues and entertain them at the same time. Now she has expanded to include young adults in her audience. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators and also the creator of the I Otter Be® line of illustrations that are available through her website. Otters are her favorite wildlife creature and her cute and active otter character found its way into the market via t-shirts and mugs. She lives with her husband and two children in western New York, where she actively writes and illustrates for herself and others, while still staying active in the volunteer community.
I read an article on Chris Brogan’s website about a similar topic, “My 3 Words”. I decided to finally take his advice. He created the “My 3 Words” exercise because most resolutions aren’t especially helpful and are usually not kept. The 3 words are more poignant, never negative and are much easier to remember.
