"I love the process of writing and illustrating picture books. Sometimes ideas for a story come from something someone says or something I see. Sometimes it is inspired by someone's character or a child's circumstances. My first Picture book, Polly and the North Star came from a childhood memory. At least that is where it began. Sometimes ideas come into my mind like gifts from another place. I can see the story in it's entirety like a picture." - Polly Horner
