I write for older readers and younger readers, on a range of subjects, with a range of styles and genre. Picture books, chapter books, YA novels, reality to fantasy, I like to dabble in them all.

Stories, that’s what I write, because life is full of stories.

I don’t think I’ll ever write down all the tales that are buzzing about inside my head, let alone the masses swarming out there in the big wide world. But it’s great fun trying. Writing is one of the most marvellous and rewarding of crafts.

If you’re not in too much of a hurry, take a moment to peep at some of my books.
