"Strong writing, a distinctive voice and original concepts" - Kelpies Prize judges
My bones grew out the ground in Zambia, where I was weaned on avocados and stories - but I'm not really 'from' any one place.
I live in Scotland with my family and work for a liberal arts college. Before writing for children, my work on migration and belonging, motherhood and minority identities was published in academic journals and books.
My writing dream
My writing dream is that my stories are enjoyed by children across Scotland and beyond, and touch some grown-up hearts along the way.
