When I write non-fiction I am seeking ways to engage the imagination. I’m also trying to make the book as user-friendly as possible, both as a reading experience and to shine a light on the complicated and confusing. I have a graphics background myself and I am extremely experienced at writing text with the book’s prospective visual appearance in mind.

This website has a small current selection from the many non-fiction books I have written on countless subjects, from aardvarks to zebras via kings and queens, machines, our world and outer space.

STEM Learning

I love writing books that introduce children to machines and inventions. Kids will encounter today’s science issues – such as climate change, pollution, Ai and space travel – and we need to give them the tools to understand what they hear. We also need to give them hope that they can make a difference – perhaps by becoming inventors, engineers and creative forward-thinkers themselves. My approach is to be questioning, clear and entertaining.

Under 5s

My books for babies and toddlers have often been written to accommodate extra elements such as paper-engineered flaps, tabs or tactile ‘touch and feel’ elements. I work very hard to ensure that extra elements serve a strong purpose, and that the finished book is user-friendly, with a satisfying sharing reading experience at its heart.

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.
