DK is an author/illustrator whose debut picture book, GIRAFFE IS TOO TALL FOR THIS BOOK, comes out in 2023 with Page Street Kids. She loves to draw animals and nature and enjoys quirky and subversive humor. Before becoming an author/illustrator DK filmed wildlife in Africa, was a collegiate and professional athlete, and taught middle school English. In 2019, she received a PBChat mentorship with Cori Doerrfeld, and in 2020, she was a PB Party finalist. DK lives in San Diego with her super awesome husband, two brilliant kids, and far too many pets.  Just kidding—there’s no such thing as too many pets.
