A place where readers can meet African American independent authors of children books… join us on our journey as we create new characters and worlds.
My name is Jacquitta A. McManus and I'm a children's book author, illustrator and publisher that is inspired by fantasy adventure stories that push the imagination.
I started writing children stories years ago, it came out of a desire to create characters I felt my daughter could relate to. It also came from a desire to create stories that would excite her imagination when she laid in bed at night.
I work as a freelance graphic designer. In the last 6 years I have created almost every marketing collateral that you can think of from magazines, newspapers, flyers, posters, folders, greeting cards , bookmarks to roads signs and even a candy wrapper.
One of my favorite things to do is Art and Photo Direct and to create children products such as books, coloring books, magazine and et. I also came to realize that I love to also create memory books. I think there's nothing better than memory books for families. When I created my first memory book years ago I got a great reaction and that's when I knew how much custom books can touch someone.
If you are looking for a freelance graphic designer please consider me.
