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 latest blogpost, currently my own tribute to the late Sam McBratney, author of ‘Guess How Much I Love You’.

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