A bit about me

I'm an award-winning picture book author and my stories are often inspired by real-world events or experiences.

After reading hundreds of picture books to my children (and some of those hundreds of times...), I started writing my own stories.

​​

I'm a board member of Bring Me A Book Hong Kong, the leading family literacy charity in Hong Kong.

I was born in the UK and have lived in France, Belgium and Hong Kong. I speak French, German and just enough Cantonese that I won’t get lost or go hungry...

I've spent the last 14 years in Hong Kong, where I live with my family.
