Dear reader, My name is Alice June. I come from the Netherlands, a country of beautiful nature, colorful tulip fields and centuries-old windmills.
Ever since I was a little girl, I adored drawing dolls, people, flowers, houses, toys and animals, so when I grew up, I decided to become an interior designer. Even though I like my job, I never ceased to illustrate things that children love and can easily relate to. My husband, who is a well-known publisher, has always been aware of this passion of mine and published a bevy of my drawings. He even made a couple of paper-backed transformers out of my designs! Those, I have to admit, are my true favorites, and I often show them to my grandchildren who live in Amsterdam together with my son. They love playing with them and are always up for a good bedtime story that I am happy to tell them. Afterward we discuss the characters and the situations and come up with new ideas. It is definitely a great way to connect with each other.
Since I truly love what I am doing, I decided to give up my job and devote all of my time to making children’s books, which are now available on Amazon. I want others to enjoy them as much as I do. I am also willing to encourage parents to spend more time with their children.
My stories are all about love, friendship, kindness, and feelings as I really want kids to understand the true values of life such as virtuousness and compassion. They have a touch of magic to them and a moral that will tug at kids ’hearts.
