nature-lover, map-explorer, story-chaser
I am an experienced primary school teacher and environmental scientist as well as being a children's author.
I self-published my first book, An Angel Anyway, and then went on to publish several books with Lion Hudson. These include picture books (Legs (2015), Just Like You (2018) and the forthcoming Beyond the Setting Sun (2021) ) and The Lion Picture Bible (2015), with its picture book offshots, The Newborn King (2019) and Alive Again (2021).
I have written thirty-two graded reading books for children learning English, published by Darakwon in S. Korea as part of their 'Wise and Wide' reading programme.
I have also been placed or highly commended in various poetry competitions, and my poem 'Ground to Air Warfare' appears in the 2014 MMU anthology 'Let in the Stars'.
