Welcome to my website.
Here you can find out about me, my books, my poems... and what Ferdie/Fletcher has been up to since his last book in some pages from his diary. I hope you enjoy the site!
My new picture book Sweet Dreaming, illustrated by Nicole Wong and published by
Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, is out now (Amazon UK / Amazon US). Kirkus Review wrote, "A familiar take on the bedtime struggle, 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 4 will be published in December 2018 and I have just finished writing book 5.
My poem Mix-up at the Zoo will be in a Bloomsbury anthology due out in February 2019, and my poem Good Moon, Bad Moon will be in an Otter-Barry Books anthology to be published in June 2019.
The picture at the top of the page is from Fletcher and the Snowflake Christmas, illustrated by Tiphanie Beeke.
I'm only the second best fairy,
But that's alright with me -
The favourite fairy is always stuck
By herself at the top of the tree.
Whereas every year I get to hang
In a different sparkly spot.
Sometimes I fly by the fairy lights,
Where it's burning bright and hot...
