Debbie Ridpath Ohi writes and illustrates children’s books for a living. She has been doing comics about NaNoWriMo for many years. Twitter: @inkyelbows

Debbie’s illustrations appear in picture books I’M BORED and NAKED! by Michael Ian Black (Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers) and she was also the illustrator for Judy Blume middle grade and chapter books reissued by Atheneum/Simon & Schuster.

Here is a fun book music video that Errol and Debbie created with the help of Errol’s daughter, Zoe:

One thought on “About Debbie

  1. Debbie, I loved your comics you’ve done for NaNoWriMo over the years, coming across the note to us that you lost your 2006 comics. Well, I have one of them. I will send it to you if you like, just let me know.
