I was born in Eastbourne and grew up by the sea. I had a magical childhood, which was filled with ghosts, fairies, witches and curious incidents such as trying to remove the school floor in pursuit of a magical land. (Regrettably I was stopped by a teacher before I got there). I also had 13 imaginary friends (4 ghosts, 4 dogs, one boy, one girl, one evil twin sister and a twin brother and sister), which meant I was never bored!

Nowadays I keep myself busy writing stories for children of all ages. My first book, Hodge the Hedgehog, appeared on CBeebies storytime and other books have been shortlisted for several book awards, including the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2013 and the Booktrust Best Books Awards 2014.
