Kids drawing, and a dragon sketch

I’ve been very privileged to spend the last 25 years working as a children’s author and illustrator. The countless titles that I’ve written and illustrated have been published all over the world. My best selling book, The Egg, has been published in 14 countries and is often used as a key text in schools.

Mark drawing

I love to visit schools to share my passion for drawing and storytelling. Through my talks I hope to inspire a life-long love of stories, thus improving literacy. In my workshops I show that drawing isn’t a magical thing reserved for the ‘gifted’, but something that anyone can enjoy, given the right tools.

My books are humorous by nature and I’ll stoop to any level to get a laugh... even wiggling my ears. My books aren’t of the cuddly kitten variety so they appeal equally to boys and girls. Book me and I can promise you a very ‘DRAGONY DAY!’

“We’ve had lots of positive feedback from your visit. One little girl told her dad it was the best day of her life ‘even better than Legoland!’”
Nadia Porter, St Mary’s Redcliffe, Bristol

Frank n Stan

Franklin P. Shelley is an only child. He asks his mother if he can have a brother or sister but she just says “We’ll see.” So Frank decides to build his own. A heartwarming family story, with plenty of references to Mary Shelley’s classic. Appealing both to the eye and the heart and, even though children are unlikely to catch the literary references, their parents will chuckle over them. Kirkus review
