Her debut picture book TURTLE IN A TREE (Dial 2021) is about two friends, Bulldog and Greyhound, who have different points of view but ultimately see that right and wrong are not cut and dry. When not in the studio, Neesha enjoys spending time outside with her husband, their two children, two dogs, and four chickens.
