I offer lively interactive sessions for Nursery, KS1 and KS2 groups. these can include storytelling and talking about where stories come from, how stories are made into books, story-building games, writing and poettry workshops. Threee of my picture books, Tattybogle, Babushka, and The Moonthieves have been made into very successful musicals for primary schools by Starshine Music, so I have music, songs and dances from the stories to bring to sessions as well. I use drafts, sketches and bags of objects to illustrate some of the stories and encourage children to develop ideas of their own for stories and poems.

I have some experience of working with special needs groups, which I enjoy very much.

I am based in Southampton and willing to travel.
