I am a children’s author from Hertfordshire, and I created my Big Little Voice® series to inspire and empower children all over the world.
The first three books in the Big Little Voice® series, Big Little Voice Colours the Grey, Big Little Voice Behind the Smile and Big Little Voice Dries my Tears, are out now in all bookshops. They are suitable for children aged 7 and above.
Big Little Voice Colours the Grey, published in 2020, was the winner of a Finalist award for the 2021 IAN Book of the Year awards, and a Red Ribbon award winner in the 2021 Wishing Shelf Awards.
Big Little Voice Behind the Smile, published in 2021, was also the winner of a Finalist award for the 2022 IAN Book of the Year awards.
I work with children from KS2 up to Year 8. I offer various presentations, including author talks, creative writing workshops, self-esteem workshops and anti-bullying presentations.
All my presentations and workshops can all be tailored to meet your organisation's individual needs, so please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
I am DBS cleared and have Public Liability Insurance cover for any work carried out within schools and local authority venues.
