I've been a writer and journalist for many years. My first love is writing children's picture books and my day job is as a creative writer for some fabulous companies. I also write for magazines, newspapers and websites around the world. I am lucky enough to have two wonderful and extremely cheeky children.  


If you're an editor, a publisher, an illustrator, a school, or someone who would like to talk to me about the wonderful world of children's picture books, then I'd like to hear from you.
