Inspiration can come from anywhere but sometimes it comes directly from things closest to us – like our pets or our children! Our first book, Miss Emily Goes to Bat, has two young characters named, William and Thomas, who actually happen to be inspired by Trina Ayling’s  own boys.  I, Micheline, thought it would be fun to show some recent pics I took of the real William and Thomas and put those alongside the illustrated characters. It is great deriving these characters from life and I am excited about the secound Miss Emily book because in addition to William and Thomas, it will feature my two kidlets, Hannah and Hunter. 🙂
