I have two children. From the moment they were born I made up stories for them when they went to bed at night.

When they were very young they paid no attention to me at all, but as they grew a little older, they started to listen.

“You should make your story into a book,” my oldest son said one day.  It was my turn to listen.

100 days later I published The Dark Green Book of Dreams.

Then I began to work on the Gravespeakers’ series, a set of six books for children between 7 and 11 years of age.

I write 3 books a year so you won’t have to wait too long for the next one to come along.

I absolutely LOVE visiting schools to do book readings or creative writing workshops.  So if you’d like me to visit your school, ask your teacher to get in touch!
