Project Description

Natural World

My natural history work varies from highly-illustrated first non-fiction up to older 7+ works. 2020 saw the publication of The Secret Life of Trees, illustrated by  Vivian Mineker. It introduces first non-fiction readers to the natural history of trees through the eyes of Oakheart the Brave. It has traditional tree stories in it as well as facts, making it a dip-in compendium. A follow-up, The Secret Life of Bees, is due in 2021.

You can see me read a story from the book on my YouTube Channel.

Dance Like a Flamingo (Welbeck), illustrated by Claudia Boldt, was the first in a new series introducing early years children to animals through dance. A follow-up – Sing Like a Whale is due in 2021.

Watch a lively introduction to the book on my YouTube Channel.

About My Work

I’m an internationally-published children’s book author. This site is an introduction to me and to my extensive range of work. My backlist includes picture books and board books for the under-5s, fiction and highly-commended non-fiction books that seek to spark a child’s imagination about our world.

Books are powerful. In the hands of a skilled author they give us a wonderful insight into the world, and in particular, they give children fantastic knowledge tools for the future. I am proud to serve children. In every project, I strive hard to engage them and give them an enjoyable reading experience.
