Well, let's see. I'm a painter and children's book author, I live in North Carolina, and...uh...just go look at the art. The art will tell you everything you need to know, and a lot of things you probably didn't.

I'm the author/illustrator of the Eisner-nominated webcomic Digger and the children's books "Nurk" and "Dragonbreath" from Harcourt-Brace and Penguin Dial, all of which can be purchased through Amazon (visit for direct links.)

Almost all art shown here can be purchased in print form at or by dropping me a note or an e-mail.

I am not accepting commissions at this time, and will not be for the foreseeable future.

Personal Quote: Have you the brainworms?!
So hey, I wrote a book! Another one, anyway!

Toad Words Cover by ursulav

It's a collection of fairy-tale retellings I've written over the years, plus an all-new never-before-seen novella called "Boar & Apples." (Think Snow White. With talking truffle pigs instead of dwarves.) As always with my stuff that's not for kids, it's under my pen-name, T. Kingfisher, so that parents do not hastily buy kids a book and not realize that this is a book full of weird and occasionally scary dark things.

You can check it out at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Smashwords, etc.

Thank you so much for your books. I love them. I'm reading the ninth one at the moment. Last summer when I worked at a library I knew their exact location and every morning I would go to see if the book I needed next was back in stock and then I would go in the back to see if already on hold for me if it wasn't.  I wish you never ever to get writers block : ) Your awesome!

finding your page is like stumbling into that magic realm you know is out there but you can't find it when looking for it. You just have to wait till bam, hey, look what I found, rock girl. I love reading your stuff and look forward to reading your story when I get it somehow. 
Thanks Ursula for existing and being found. My time portal will be set for your world often.....Love Clap Nod Heart
