How common is it to be both the author and illustrator of books? I don't pay much attention to young picture books where it might be more common, but I pictured Mallory wanting to write meatier stories than that. I don't know offhand of any children's chapter books where the author did their own pictures.
i think mallory will probably end up as a librarian, mostly because i don't see her EVER getting her book published. she has such messed up views over what makes a good piece of literature (freaking out that HH's book wasn't straight from real life, that horrible play where she puts her family on blast, etc) that i just don't think she would be successful. she'll keep trying though. haha.
She's only eleven though. Lots of kids have strange views like that when they're that age. I think Mallory could grow up to be a successful writer.

I see Mallory being a librarian and an author. Not an illustrator, though. Maybe I could see her owning a bookstore or perhaps even an English teacher. Idk, though, since Mal seems too socially awkward to teach.
