In 2015 I was one of 15 writers selected to take part in a Curtis Brown Creative Writing for Children course tutored by Catherine Johnson.
I live in Suffolk with my husband and two children and when I’m not writing I love nothing more than curling up with a good book. My favourite children’s authors include Emma Carroll, Katherine Rundell and Katherine Woodfine. I also love long walks in the countryside, swimming and drinking lots of tea!
