I grew up in the Midlands with my two sisters, my wonderful parents and lots of rescued pets!


When I was little, my sisters and I were always making lots of colourful mess and unfortunately for my mum and dad, this enthusiastic mess-making continued throughout school and beyond, becoming increasingly difficult to stash in an overflowing loft! 

After graduating in 2008 with a degree in Fine Art, I worked in a primary school as a teaching assistant and realised within weeks, that making children's books was what I wanted passionately to do. I have always loved reading stories and still get teased for how excited I get about going the library.

I now live back in my hometown with two cats, a big fat cuddly one called Eddie and a midget evil genius called Captain Pom Pom.
