Airlie returns frequently to her hometown of Carmel, California. Its fairy tale charm and origins as an artists' colony made a strong impression on her as a child.
Her award winning books include Ten Little Ducks (Taiwan Best Children's English Language Book, 2011) and Cows in the Kitchen (Practical Preschool Award 2008). Her newest picture book, Momo and Snap Are Not Friends is published by Child's Play International.
