Details

After 20 years of teaching, mainly primary in UK but also Canada I took early retirement to concentrate on writing children stories.

I'm passionate about encouraging children to gain the enjoyment from books that I always have and enjoy sharing my stories in talks and workshops.

 I enjoy working with other educators to support their needs and those of their pupils and work closely together to make my contribution relevant and enjoyable.

I talk to adult and community groups about my experiences and the art of putting words on paper - not always easy!

I look forward to meeting you.

Sheila
