The Return of Doctor Dragonwagon!

"Worlds are waiting! Wonderful things!"

I wrote The Return of Doctor Dragonwagon as an online comic book for a subscription based provider called Girlamatic. I had never done a "Graphic Novel" before and wanted to see if I could so I spent six months drawing it. It has fairies, changelings, dragons and many other fantastical things. This story, about how sometimes things are not quite what they seem, is available here for free for the first time.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.  - Anna Quindlen

I just spent a lovely weekend up in Los Angeles at the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators Conference. It was an amazing few days with many wonderful artists like Tomie DePaola and Rosemary Wells who draws the Max and Ruby books. To my surprise (and utter delight) I won this award for my portfolio, one of only two prizes given away. The best part of the conference was meeting lots of very nice and creative people. I'm inspired!



Wishing you a week filled with books and tea and wonder!

Best thoughts, Marilyn.


"Read to your bunny often. It's twenty minutes of fun.

It's twenty minutes of moonlight. And twenty minutes of sun.

Twenty old-favorite minutes. Twenty minutes brand new.

Read to your bunny often and your bunny will read to you."

– Rosemary Wells


Don't be afraid to attempt something new.
Remember, it was amateurs who built the ark.
It was professionals who built the Titanic.
