The book, which follows a young girl who is encouraged to express how her spirit within sees the world, began over a year ago after Branson retired. Thomas spent time with her grandmother listening to her stories to draw inspiration for the illustrations.
“The book required a lot of time and hard work. It was quite nerve-racking, but exciting at the same time,” Thomas said. It was awesome to see the book finally finished, and I am glad we did this together as a team. We hope to publish more books together in the future.”
Although Thomas’ passion for drawing began in the early days of her childhood, she aims to pursue a career in Pediatrics, keeping drawing as a hobby. Congratulations on this outstanding accomplishment, Jayla! We look forward to seeing more of your published work.
