H. McGill provokes curiosity with comics. Graphic novels can be enjoyed quietly by oneself, or shared with friends. They’re never loud and ‘pausing’ one is easy — although a good one is hard to put down! The graphic novel is a safe space for puzzling out the world. Her background is in illustration and graphic design, but found herself drawn to comics as a peaceful mingling of the two disciplines. She loves every page, panel, and speech balloon.

H.’s favorite thing to do on a graphic novel team is lettering. She’s on the lookout for the next graphic novel to add to her portfolio, preferably for Young Adult (YA) or Middle Grade (MG) audiences. She especially enjoys the informational fiction and science communication (scicomm) space, with some forays into fantasy, slice-of-life, and historical fiction. She’ll letter anything as long as it’s stuck to a page.
