Ruby Booker Is Back


Ruby Booker is back with a 4th book due in stores this month. I have the
pleasure and honor of being the illustrator of Ruby.
Derrick Barnes is a wonderful writer and I really enjoy working
on the wonderful characters he creates in Ruby's world.
I'm now working on the cover for the 5th book in the series. Maybe
I'll get a chance to show you a sketch or two. You can purchase Ruby
online at Barnesandnobles.com or Amazon.com.
Thanks for your support!
