I write whimsical and quirky stories for children of all ages.

My writing life has also included a long career in journalism, during which I have written countless articles on all manner of subjects and edited magazines, anthologies and newspapers.

I now spend my days creating stories and sharing my passion for books and writing by presenting writing sessions to encourage children and adults to explore the world of their imagination.

Books no longer in print

Two of my earliest publications for children are now out of print. I continue to use them in my presentations to children because they beautifully illustrate the way writers can draw ideas from their own life experiences or imagination. The books are still in some libraries and copies can occasionally be bought on Ebay.
