I write stories for children.

Stories of the kind, I hope, will create little bubbles of laughter in your stomach, that rise up and come bursting forth as guffaws from your gob and as snorts from your snoot.

Stories for children of all kind – wiggly wormers, snotty snifflers, frowny facers, glum grumblers, cheerful cherubs, nerdy numbers, hysterical historians, fact finders, fiction fiends … any kind. My writing spans picture books, early readers and middle grade books.

If you read, you can be any kind of critter from the list, but one thing is certain: you are marvellous! Thank you for looking me up!

If you would like to know more about me, what got me writing, where I live, whether I own a baby donkey and other such stuff, read more on the About Me page.

My recent blog posts

Superglued fingers, travel and a new season of MasterChef Australia; reasons for hitting pause on my writing.

Summer break begins in ten days. The kids’ school calendar for these last few days looks ready to burst, packed as it is with project submissions, PTMs, book-day preparations and global perspectives day amongst others. I have glue in my hair, superglued fingers and am snipping paper in my sleep. There’s the travel planning, packing and repacking […]

NPS: New Plot Syndrome

As of last night, I’ve moved past my Post Manuscript Syndrome stage with Squiggle, part 2 – yes, it is a GO and I couldn’t be more thrilled and excited about moving a step closer to the crucial design stage for this book. Meanwhile, I’ve plunged headlong into writing the next History Mystery. Well, not quite […]

I'd love to hear from you
