I Miss My Mommy is the world’s first picture book for big people without parents.

It’s a love letter to orphaned adults (my people) who find calendar holidays, like Mother’s Day, especially hard.

Tell me if you agree: after you lose a parent, first you grieve that they’re gone and never coming back. Then you grieve how they affected you. I took the five stages of grief and turned them into a cast of 150 hand drawn characters, some grim, some funny, but all relatable.

I call it getting graphic about grief.

If you’re struggling with loss, I hope this book helps you find a way to sit with emotions you’ve been avoiding but can’t stop feeling.

Present the book to a friend who misses their mom on Mother’s Day, or someone who is still trying to make sense of their relationship with a parent.

I Miss My Mommy is now available for pre-order at

And as a thank you to those who place a Pre-Order, I will email you a FREE chapter and send you a bookmark!
