I live in Somerset with my family and two cats. As a former lecturer I appreciate the importance and value of children’s literature. I have won several poetry competitions blaming the success on my wild and vivid imagination. The idea for Will’s War came about one day when I visited a ghost village evacuated in 1943 during WWII. I am never without a notepad and pen and a head full of ideas.


Five Facts about me:

  • I love cats
  • I love marmite
  • I’m vegetarian
  • I always start writing at the back of a notebook not the front (weird I know)
  • My favourite colour is purple
