I'm an author, storyteller, illustrator and YouTube drawing guru.
Being dyslexic, I find writing more challenging than drawing. Storytelling is my forte, which is why I'm an illustrator too.
I've written and illustrated over two hundred books that span the ability and interest of primary school children.Many of them are series books.
The Ginger Ninja - Viking Vik - Ricky Rocket - Axel Storm - Olympia
and my more recent trilogy for upper primary - Dragon Gold - Dragon White & Dragon Red
and coming in January - Walker - The boy who can speak to dogs.
My preferred day starts with a 20 minute whole school introduction assembly, followed by three one hour story/illustration workshops. I choose one of my books to suit the children, or a curriculum theme you are working on, talk about the book and its creation and perform it.
I'll show the children how I draw the character and show them how to draw it too - have pencils and paper ready! (Schools are always amazed by the results of these drawings!)
I'm very adaptable, so if you have other ideas or particular project you would like me to be involved in, let me know.
