The only way to fireproof yourself is to have a clear intention about why you are doing what you are doing.

About the speaker

Daniel Miyares is an award winning picture book author and illustrator. Some of his books include: Float, an ALA-ALSC Notable Children’s Book of the Year, which The Boston Globe called “a perfect wordless picture book”; Bring Me A Rock!, which received a silver medal from the Society of Illustrators Original Art Show; and most recently Night Out, the story of a lonely young boy’s fantastical journey into the moonlit night after his beloved pet turtle goes missing.

Daniel’s love of storytelling began as a child in the foothills of South Carolina where he grew up. After studying illustration at Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota FL, he made his way west to Kansas City to work with Hallmark Cards, Inc. He currently lives in Lenexa, KS with his lovely wife, their two children, and a rascal of a dog named Violet.
