Welcome to my little corner of the internet.
I am a daydreamer turned storyteller. I love to pen playful tales for little ones and witty, thought-provoking musings for the 'slightly' grown-up. I like to think my whimsical writing style inspires laughter and curiosity in children and inspires insightful, reassuring reflection in adults.
My first book The Barefoot Indian received international acclaim.One unusual fact - I experience synesthesia. It's a pretty cool and unusual neurological condition where your senses ‘cross over’. So, for example, you might see colours when you hear music, or taste words when you speak them. Your brain creates unexpected connections between things that most people keep separate. It’s a fascinating aspect of my life that has influenced my writing style and approach. I find it a really beautiful and colourful way to experience the world!Beyond writing, I have a deep love for animals, the tranquillity of the sea, and the beauty of rural landscapes. I find inspiration in nature and all creatures great and small.Living in the UK, on the south coast, I am constantly inspired by its beauty. This fuels my imagination, so, grab a copy of one of my books and let your imagination run wild too!
