About

I write and illustrate books for children.  All of my books are lighthearted and fun, yet they all have an underlying theme – to appreciate nature and look after our planet.

My latest book, ‘Fabulous Frog and the Insect Stories’, introduces children to the wonderful world of insects in a lighthearted and fun way, yet it is full of interesting facts perfect for children’s curiosity.

‘The Christmas Reindeer who saved the World’ is a Christmas story with an underlying message empowering children to be aware of the plastic in our seas and how we can help.

My first book ‘Fabulous Frog and the Bumblebee (and me)’ follows the adventures of a little girl and Fabulous Frog as they look for bees.  The story touches on the decline of bees in the world today and teaches children about bees in a lighthearted way.

I inherited my love of nature from my late father, who was an entomologist/insect scientist.  My mother gave me an appreciation of art.  I really hope that you enjoy my books.
