Meet Author Petrell Marie Özbay 

Wife, mom, former harried PR exec and list maker extraordinaire, Petrell has needed glasses for a very, very long time...likely due from sneak reading Judy Blume books by moonlight long after her bedtime. Her next book, Merry Witchmas (BoydsMills Press), co-authored with voice actor Tess La Bella. will bring magic and whimsy to bookshelves everywhere in September 2021. 

​​"...a sweet and simple story that makes good use of repetition to engage youngsters...and Motz’s colorful, animated illustrations of happy-looking creatures also provide appeal...A bright, lighthearted, and comforting book..."  Kirkus Review
