    My name is Charlie Eve Ryan (pen name), I am a happily married mama of two young kids. I have worked as a professional writer/illustrator for the last 10 years in children’s book publishing. I absolutely love sharing my bookmaking passion with young kids. I work both traditionally and digitally with a mixed media approach.

    I have previously worked in education as a substitute assistant teacher for Perkiomen Valley School district. I mostly worked with elementary-aged children in grades K through 5 both one on one and assisting teachers in the traditional classrooms. I loved working with children with special needs assisting them with task/time management, math, reading, and writing as well as assisting teachers with students in the regular classroom in all subjects and as a library aide when needed. I have also taught English online for over a year.

    Prior to working as a writer/illustrator, I was a patient care technician in the pediatric ICU at All Children’s Hospital in Florida for 3 years and went on to become a Licenced Practical Nurse at a cancer center in Tampa, FL for two years.

    I absolutely love working with kids and especially helping them express themselves creatively through art, books, and writing.

    My work is represented by Charlotte Wegner of Prospect Agency. I work with a variety of trade children’s book publishers, as well as educational publishers and children’s magazines. My various clients include Page Street Kids, Boyds Mill Kane, Amicus Ink, McGraw-Hill, Highlights for Children, and Ladybug Magazine.

    I am the author/illustrator of the traditionally published picture book, BLUE CAT, published by Boyds-Mill Kane in NY as well as the illustrator for WHO IS MAKING A MESS, published by Amicus Ink and SATURDAYS ARE FOR STELLA, published by Page Street Kids. I would love the opportunity to share my skills with the kids on your platform. Happy creating!

    I accepted Christ into my heart as an adult after a huge personal loss. I lost my father in high school to cancer and later on in my early 30’s I also lost my daughter who was born prematurely. Bringing Jesus into my life definitely helped me to heal my heart. I have always felt a spiritual connection and I am so glad I never stopped questioning and searching. This journey was worth the wait and I strive to bring God, hope, love, and Christian values into my children’s lives every day. We love the worship music at our church and our kids especially love their summer camps.

    I love art, painting, drawing, reading, writing, movies, birds, flowers, gardening, bookmaking, and spending time with my kids and husband.

    Currently, there are no courses.
