Welcome to my website. I write all sorts of books for children of all ages. Picture books, story books, magic stories, mysteries, joke and puzzle books – I’ve written them all. Click on my books page to see some of my titles and the Bibliography page for a list of them all.
Do you like writing too? Send me your story or poem and it might get featured on my Kid's Work page!

Some things you might like to know about me
I have absolutely no sense of direction and get lost so often my family are scared to let me go out on my own. So if I visit your school please make sure you keep an eye on me or you never know where I will end up. I can't ride a bike. I can't whistle. I can make paper planes, fortune tellers and lots of things from cardboard tubes and bits of paper. When my daughters were small I used to make their clothes. They have never forgiven me. The things I like best are eating chocolate and reading, preferably both at the same time.
