I write books for children, and have particular interests in traditional folk tales, myths, and legends from the British Isles and around the world. My style is to mix the old and new, the familiar and bizarre, the everyday and the extraordinary, creating stories that hopefully provoke some curiosity, and above all, entertain. I’ve just published my first novel, Jennifer Brown and the Dagger, which is centred around a little girl with some unexpected qualities.
Let me know if you have any questions about my work or want to get in touch to arrange a school or library visit.
Save the date Saturday, 17 June 2017 for a Meet the Artist & Author event at Lincoln Central Library with me and Charlotte Jane, the inspiring artist who created the cover art for Jennifer Brown and the Dagger.
