Welcome to my website. Here you can find out about me, my books, my poems... and what Fletcher has been up to since his last book in some pages from his diary. I hope you enjoy the site!
Woohoo! The Fletcher's Four Seasons books, illustrated by Tiphanie Beeke, are going to be re-published in the UK by Graffeg Books. Fletcher and the Springtime Blossoms and Fletcher and the Summer Show will be published in April 2020. Fletcher and the Falling Leaves and Fletcher and the Snowflake Christmas will follow in the autumn (Tiphanie Beeke's beautiful illustration above is from Fletcher and the Falling Leaves).
My latest picture book Sweet Dreaming, illustrated by Nicole Wong and published by Sourcebooks, is out now. Kirkus Review wrote, "this tender nighttime story will safely soothe readers to dreamy bliss." See the full review here.

I'm loving working with Working Partners on Mio and the Mermaids, a chapter book series for the Japanese market. Book 5 was published in June 2019, Book 6 will be out in December and I have just finished Book 7.
My poem Mix-up at the Zoo is included in the recent Bloomsbury anthology I am a Jigsaw, and my poem Good Moon, Bad Moon is in the Otter-Barry Books anthology Moonstruck!
