Hi there – welcome to my website! I’m a children’s book writer and the author of picture books including Scholastic’s popular ‘Daddy’s Little Star’, illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw and featuring a cute Little Fox finding out about the natural world.

I’ll keep you up to date with book news via this website, and I’ll sometimes let you know what’s going on in my garden here in the UK. Like gardens worldwide, it’s the perfect place to find inspiration for a story!

Please browse via the menu above or featured links below, or click to my blog, currently welcoming the deepwinter start of the New Year with a review of Gillian McClure’s third Dog on Wheels picture book, Dog on Wheels Goes Snowboarding.

My thanks to Rosalind Beardshaw and Sebastien Braun for the use of their illustrations on this website.
