I have been writing fiction for eleven years, since finishing my BA (Hons) Degree in English Literature and Language, and I have been teaching creative writing in Schools and independent groups for the past six years.
Many of my creative writing students have gone on to be shortlisted and won competitions as well as seeing their work in print.
I am passionate about writing and the creative process, I enjoy inspiring others to write, and I am proud to be part of the writing journey of the people that I instruct. I have worked with both adult and children, helping them to explore the many exciting elements of fiction writing and empowering them to become creative.
Storytelling is one of the most enduring and rewarding pastimes; I consider it an honour and a treat to share my stories with many, many young readers.
I am best known for my #1 bestselling* humorous Children's book Ninja Nan and Sidekick Grandad, which was shortlisted and a finalist in The Peoples Book Prize 2014
