"Strong writing, a distinctive voice and original concepts" - Kelpies Prize judges

Welcome! I am a writer of children's fiction and nonfiction. I live with my family in the Scottish Borders, but I'm not really from any one place. My bones grew out of the ground in Zambia, where I was weaned on avocados and stories. I have also lived in India, Vanuatu and Nigeria. My writing dream is that my books are enjoyed by children far and wide, and touch some grown-up hearts along the way. Thank you for stopping by - please stay a while, and do pop back!
