Jamie lives with her husband/superhero/illustrator/designer Mary Braun and their daughter Daisy. She draws inspiration from moonlight, reflections, pink clouds, wishing on the first star, and the raw beauty of Maine. She bikes and beachcombs between deadlines, always on the lookout for something magical washed up by the tide.
