I am an award-winning, self-produced, independent Children’s Fiction Writer/Performer and Arts Practitioner. My first book, Alfie’s First Fight, was published in 2022 (Stories Of Care & Man Met Uni) and won ‘Best Indie-Published Young Illustrated Reader’ at the 2023 Children’s Literature Festivals Book Awards. Featuring boxing action, surprising plot twists, compelling characters and an inspiring boy-hero, this funny and heart-warming story is inspired by my own experiences growing up in a low-income, single parent family of boxers. In 2023, I added Fishing For Rainbows (Stories Of Care & Man Met Uni) to my list of books, heralded by Carnegie-award-winning author, Anthony McGowan, as ‘Simply brilliant!’ My debut poetry collection, We Are Family: Six Kids and a Super-Dad (Otter-Barry Books), is currently in production and scheduled for publication in May 2024. I am have also just finished the Alfie’s First Fight sequel, Alfie and the Thief.

Play explores the nuances of male friendships as four boys navigate towards adulthood - when one of them gets drawn into a county lines drugs gang, their childish games take a wrong turn. It's predecessor, Grow, is a critically acclaimed, tense, exciting, contemporary YA story about grief and far-right radicalisation. I am an experienced educator and speaker. My novels draw on my extensive work with young people as an English teacher, with a particular eye on reluctant male readers. My books deal with themes like anger, shame and friendship which I continue in my author talks on the importance of reading and in my engaging and inclusive workshops. I am flexible to your context and can tailor sessions for large and small groups to suit your requirements.
