Marriage, a delightful daughter and a splendid son, and lots of moves to lots of places: Cyprus, Dubai, Sharjah. Back to the UK and Bristol, the Llyn Peninsula, and Pembrokeshire. I now live in a lovely converted Chapel in a small village outside Bath. I had some diverse jobs in that time and three different businesses – all involving holiday accommodation. Plenty of book ideas there let me tell you. ☺
My first children’s book Tarantula Tide won the Kelpies Prize and The Heart of Hawick Award and was long-listed for the Branford Boase. My second, another Middle Grade Mystery, The Shiver Stone, is published by Firefly Press.
I have two Masters degrees: one in Creative Writing from the University of Wales and the other in ‘Writing for Young People’ from Bath Spa University.
I am a member of The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, The Scattered Authors Society and Children’s Book Insider.
My agent is Rebecca Bagnall at the Lindsay Literary Agency.
