Writer, Creative, Reviewer, Teacher
Golden Egg Academy, London, 2020
Member of SCBWI British Isles
I was a teacher for nine years, having worked in schools from deprived areas of London to the Andes of Ecuador. I have often read my own stories, children's books, and fairy-tales to my classes, and discussed the issues of the day. Children understand perhaps better than adults what is going on in the world and what we need to do to make a difference.
I now supply teach and tutor to spend more time writing and more time reading to my daughter Lily! My latest work-in-progress is a spooky middle-grade fantasy: 'The Spectres of Spitfire Row' which I hope to complete with the Golden Egg Academy in London.
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. Follow me on Twitter!
