About the Author
Corinne has written and illustrated a children’s picture book series about her character, eepworm. In the series, eepworm helps children manage strong emotions, while being a comfort item as a real toy. Right now, the series includes My Friend EEPWORM and EEPWORM's Emotional Day, but she plans to continue writing more books in the series.
"When I was a child, I often had intense emotions. I wondered why, and I later learned I have brain disorders like ADHD and autism. Feeling overwhelmed and alone, I created the eepworm character to be a calming tool and a friend. I loved how my eepworms felt like a hug in my hand! With my adorable and comforting friends, I could deal with my strongest feelings. As an adult, I wrote this book to help children (and adults) everywhere." — Corinne Goyette
Corinne has lived with many brain disorders all of her life, such as autism and ADHD. She hopes that as her character and comfort item helped her as a child, more children can be comforted as well. That is why she wrote her eepworm® book series and continues to advocate for the importance of mental health in children: she knows how they feel.
