About the Author

Hallie Heald is a freelance book illustrator and portrait painter in New York. 41 Reasons I’m Staying In, is her first book to write and second to illustrate. Heald was born a lone introvert in a family of nine kids, and spent her days painting and listening to audiobooks, years later she’s doing the same thing in a different room. The idea for the book was inspired by season 1 episode 4 of Seinfeld, entitled: “Male Unbonding,” when Jerry and Elaine invent excuses to avoid an unwanted lunch date: jury duty, choir practice, etc. Her work can also be found in The Women Who Made New York and has been featured in The New York Times, NY Mag, The Cut, The Voice, Elle, and Brain Pickings

What a beautifully illustrated book! I most appreciate the diversity that is shown throughout it and all of the intricate details. I can only imagine how long it took to create each of these worlds! I've followed the author's work since her other illustrated work in The Women Who Made New York. Comparing the two showcases the range of artistic ability, and I couldn't be happier to own both. As a self-proclaimed introvert (although maybe some friends would say I'm more Omni), I love staying in with this book.

This book is one of the most creative, witty and beautiful books on my shelf! The author/illustrator provides a peek into 41 different lives by elaborately capturing the intimate, humorous and eccentric details of their bedrooms. The illustrations are so detailed that every time I open it to a page I notice something I hadn't before. (It's like an adult "I Spy" with sophisticated humor.) I've given this book as a gift to several people (extroverts included) and each has enjoyed flipping through the pages, identifying with the women who make each page come alive.
