I am a British children's book author, journalist and documentary producer currently residing in California.
I've been writing for a living for over twenty years, and I am passionate about children's literature.
As an entertainment correspondent I have interviewed stars from across the celebrity spectrum, but I'm happiest when tinkering with a kids' manuscript, whether it be a picture book biography or a whimsical rhyming text.
When I'm not writing, I love to travel: I've been fortunate enough to live on three continents, and visit over sixty-five countries. My adventures inspire my work, and I've yet to find a cure for chronic wanderlust!
My friends would describe me as a history buff, a keen photographer, and an afternoon tea aficionado (with a magpie-like fascination for all things that sparkle!)
I live in a Los Angeles beach city with my husband and three children - all budding bibliophiles.
