ABOUT ME

Children's Writer, Reviewer, Teacher, Artis

English Lead

TRG Lead for Watford/ Hertfordshire

Golden Egg Academy

I have been a primary school teacher for over twelve years, having worked in schools from deprived areas of London to the Andes of Ecuador. I recognise the importance of reading for pleasure, and champion children's literature as an English Lead, OU UKLA Teachers' Reading Group (TRG) Lead for Hertfordshire/ Watford and leading my school on HarperCollins' national Storytime project.

 

Currently I review the latest children's books and have been included in publicity campaigns for some of the major children's publishing houses in the UK. I am also a middle-grade writer and mentee of the prestigious Golden Egg Academy. My latest work-in-progress is a middle-grade fantasy-adventure: 'The Once and Future Boy'

Before becoming a teacher I worked for arts organisations, including setting up and running a community magazine. I also briefly worked as a freelance reporter and arts reviewer for a local newspaper. 

Creativity is my thing - I love writing and reading books especially. I love championing the very best in children's literature. I am also a husband and father to two wonderful daughters.
