In her interview about her latest picture book, My Heart, Katrina McKelvey explores the joys and challenges of motherhood while providing insights into her collaboration with illustrator Deb Hudson.

What do you love about writing children's books?

I love being a child in a child’s world. I also love seeing picture book images pop in my head as I write.

I enjoy the challenge of writing in picture book format. So much has to be squeezed into a small word count.
