Hello and welcome to the website of




author and storyteller

Welcome to my website where you can explore my books, and find out about me,  

Current news

Although we have all been stuck inside, outside spring has been magnificent.  I have loved watching the trees and gardens around me bud and bloom. I've had feathered visitors to my garden I don't normally see and have loved the birdsong of robins and blackbirds.

To help celebrate the wonderful outside you might like to share in the Urban Tree festival.


Isolation Inspiration!

Alongside fellow writers, Dom Conlon, Mo O'Hara and Chitra Soundar I  have been writing a series of poems inspired by our reflections on life in lockdown. 

It's available here as a free download pdf. Do share it with your family and friends. Send us your poems, stories  and illustrations.

Why not make your own superhero?
