Introducing…Picture Book Debut Author Andrea Loney

AndreaJLoney.jpegAndrea J Loney in three scenes:

  1. She is the 2017 picture book debut author of BUNNYBEAR, illustrated by Carmen Saldaña and published by Albert Whitman & Company. It’s a story about a bear who believes in his heart that he is truly a bunny, but neither the bears nor the bunnies understand until he makes one special friend. BUNNYBEAR features themes of acceptance, individuality, and friendship.
  2. She is also the Lee & Low 2014 New Voices Award Winner for the 2017 debut picture book TAKE A PICTURE OF ME, JAMES VAN DER ZEE, illustrated by Keith Mallett and published by Lee & Low Books. It’s a biography about an innovative photographer named James Van Der Zee who spent over 70 years creating portraits of the people of Harlem. TAKE A PICTURE OF ME, JAMES VAN DER ZEE features themes of perseverance, creativity, and community.
  3. Andrea J Loney grew up in a small town in New Jersey with many bunnies and few bears, and could usually be found behind a stack of her favorite books. After running away with a circus, she worked in film, television and education. Now she writes and teaches in sunny Southern California, and lives with her family and their wacky pets.
