About Kady and Izzy
Hi! I'm so glad you've found my site! I am the author and illustrator of the Izzy the Corgi Adventure Series... a children's book series that makes great bedtime stories. Some of my best memories of our my parents and grandparents reading stories to me and I hope my series helps you make memories with your kids.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself: I am 18 and I love living in my small, Kansas town. I'm involved in 4H, art, forensics, band, scholars bowl, track and lots of activities at my church - that's the blessing of a small town - you can be involved in a lot of things. I also play the violin. In my free time I like to play with my dog and hang out or play games with my friends.
Izzy is my cowboy corgi. Izzy is called a "cowboy corgi" because she is 3/4 Penn brook welsh corgi and 1/4 Australian shepherd. This makes her adorable and REALLY FAST. Plus, she can jump pretty well! She is four now and I love her so much! I show her in 4H and she does great but the best thing is - she is so cute! I hate to leave her - I even had my picture taken with her at prom!! Check out more of her pictures and videos below.
Izzy loves to play catch , really just PLAY anything - hide and seek is a favorite (see my videos of that! or follow Izzy on Facebook at IzzytheCorgi).
I was 16 and a sophomore in high school when I wrote my first book as part of a project based learning class at my high school. I discovered having a grade made me a lot more motivated to get the book done. My second book took a bit longer and I wrote it and illustrated it throughout my junior year. Book 2 is more of a comic book and it took A LOT longer to draw all the pictures. I finished my third book in spring of 2023 and I'm very pleased with the results - at my mom and English teacher's urging, this one even contains some punny cow jokes.
I plan to go into fine art and graphic design in college. If you'd like to see some of my other artwork CLICK HERE.
