I sure am. Born and raised in Louisiana. I wouldn't live anywhere else!

I think just before they published my book, so I'm pretty lucky.

Thanks. The title and most everything I wrote was kept as-is. The art went through multiple revisions. Pelican is a Louisiana based publisher, so the title was perfect for them. I'm really branding this book for Louisiana, and partly because I pitched it to Pelican Publishing who specializes in Louisiana books.

I think this was meant to be, because I looked for a Louisiana publisher, mailed it in, and they asked me to not sign a contract with anyone else until they talked with me first. But as I said above, I was a Louisiana author/artist pitching a Louisiana book to a Louisiana publishing business. It was the first and only publisher I sent the book to, and I realize that is NOT typical.

Mosquitos are plentiful in Louisiana. So much so that we jokingly call them the state bird. The name Boudreaux is a common Cajun name.
