Christmas 2015 (2)

Hi, I’m Cadence. I live in West Hills, CA. In December of 2019, I received an Master’s in Library and Information Science from San Jose State University with the hopes of one day becoming a public librarian. It surely comes as no surprise that COVID-19 has complicated my search for employment.

To make the best use of this unique time in history, I continued development on Ad Libris, a librarian themed board game which began as a school project. Ad Libris is a resource game that where players become librarians and build library collections. It’s fun and gets people talking about books they have read and books they want to read. For these reasons, I feel it has market potential, and plan to explore options for publishing and production within the next year.

When not working on Ad Libris, I created ColorSprings Studio via Redbubble.com. I love creating alcohol art ink, and this has given me a platform for sharing my art with others. I currently have over 90 designs available in everything from apparel to stationary, with a catalog of over 4000 products.

In addition to the projects above, I also drafted a middle grade fantasy fiction novel of about 55000 words. It is currently being queried to agents.

I can be reached at cadence.mckinnon @gmail.com and would love to hear from other library, fiction, or creative enthusiasts. Please, no solictations 🙂
