Over ten years in-house at London publishers,

I had the privilege of creating, writing and ghostwriting all kinds of books for children, from activity and joke books to brand gift books, novelty titles and picture books, for brands from Beatrix Potter and the Very Hungry Caterpillar to celebrities such as CBeebies' Mr Tumble and YouTube star Louise Pentland. As a freelancer, I am now writing and co-writing a number of fiction series.

I am a versatile, quick and creative writer, always looking for new challenges, and I'd love to work with you!
