I'm thrilled that Leah's Star will be published by Alanna Max in October.

I have reworked the text under the expert eye of my editor, Anna McQuinn and the ever talented Ken Wilson-Max has redesigned the cover and title making Karin Littlewood's illustrations look even more beautiful than ever.


Do check out my events page for my public storytelling dates at the Horniman Museum.
