I recently took on representation of my first picture book author, and it was worth the wait! Danny Appleby’s ELLA & BALLOONS IN THE SKY is a wonderful book of love and loss and all the balloons in between.
Author Danny Appleby lives in Toronto, Canada. He founded and runs the acclaimed creative agency Think Tank Creative where he spends his days creating digital art and eating cereal. Aside from being a visual artist Danny has been a semi-professional rollerblader, a grade seven public speaking regional runner-up, a backup harmonica player (in his older brother’s band), and an avid writer both creatively and journalistically. It wasn’t until recently that he made the move into the world of children’s stories.
Danny has four adorable nieces (monsters) named Aubrey, Marlow, Joley, and Ella who are the inspiration for his stories.
