Welcome to my website. Here you can find out about me, my books, my poems... and what my little fox Fletcher has been up to in some pages from his diary.
Super-excited to announce four more books in the best-selling Fletcher' s Four Seasons series are on the way! Graffeg are publishing four new Fletcher stories, illustrated by Tiphanie Beeke. Fletcher and the Caterpillar will be published in March, followed by Fletcher and the Rainbow in August. Fletcher and the Rockpool and Fletcher and the Stars will be published in 2022.
Shimmery, sparkly new UK editions of the first four seasons, Fletcher and the Springtime Blossom, Fletcher and the Summer Show, Fletcher and the Falling Leaves and Fletcher and the Snowflake Christmas are out now.
