Praise for Cajun Night After Christmas:
“This Cajun tale, written in verse, tells the hilarious story of one of St. Nick’s alligators who was left behind after the toys were delivered one Christmas Eve.”
After a chaotic holiday with friends and family, Amy Dixon and her sister, Jenny Jackson Moss, created Cajun Night After Christmas, a humorous story about what happens to the Boudreau family after St. Nick visits and how an alligator named Pierre finds true love.
A Louisiana native, Dixon attended Newcomb College of Tulane University in New Orleans, where she received her BA in studio arts. After graduating, she studied at the Studio Arts Center International in Florence, Italy, and then returned to the States to work at Dallas Apparel Mart as a sales representative.
In 1984, Dixon started A.J. Designs, a clothing business specializing in hand-painted apparel. She continued with her handcrafted T-shirt line for eight years before shifting her focus back to fine arts. Her work has been showcased in various exhibitions, ranging from a one-person show in Baton Rouge to a juried show at the Galleria Vittorio in Italy. She also illustrated Who’s That Tripping Over My Bridge?, available from Pelican.
Dixon currently resides in Denver, Colorado, with her husband and three children and continues to concentrate on the fine arts, particularly painting. Cajun Night After Christmas is her first book.
