Second of four children, I grew up with three brothers and began storytelling to my two younger siblings when I was quite young. I trained as a teacher and spent most of my teaching career with Reception and Year 1 classes. I escaped from school a while ago and since then, I have written many books, for early readers, Key Stages 1 and 2 and teens. Now I live in West Sussex with my husband, Dave. I have two adult children and five grandchildren.
