Details

Hello! I write picture books and junior fiction for children. I'm available for school visits, workshops and literary festivals. My picture book The Snowflake Mistake was the CBeebies Bedtime Story on 15 December.

Adult workshops

As someone who was discovered in the 'slush pile', I would love to come and talk to you about how to create and submit a picture book. I have five years' experience teaching in the adult learning sector. I'm also the author of the chapter on social media for writers in The Handbook of Creative Writing (second edition) published by Edinburgh University Press.

 

I am based in Bedfordshire and can travel around the South East and London.

Member of the Society of Authors.

Public Liability Insurance and CRB.

Homework on Pluto

Homework on Pluto

 A holiday to Pluto seems like a well-deserved reward for Jon, considering he has just saved the entire planet. However, with homework arriving from Earth, mad Grans and handbag-stealing blue-headed skwitches to deal with, Jon’s trip might be more eventful than he’d planned! A brilliantly funny sequel to Letter to Pluto.
