I write action packed stories for adventurous children, creative writing workbooks and will be publishing some parenting guides later this year.
I set up the #kidsclub for youngsters aged 6-11 to encourage a love of reading and writing. Every month I share word based activities, book recommendations, competitions and giveaways with other parents. If that sounds good, you can find out more here.
The Blog: Mum’s Book Blast
I blog about kids books, activities, arts and crafts. I also have a series of guest posts from other authors and bloggers which I hope you enjoy. Plus I pop in the occasional non-fiction, which might be cookery, travel, crafting or family life.
I was born in Edinburgh and grew up in the Scottish Highlands. I now split my time between London and Chichester, but still go back to Scotland regularly.
I also sail and ride horses, both of which I do badly.
Eternal Seas was written whilst cruising in the Mediterranean; the storm described in the book was frightening real.
Concentrating on not falling off makes writing tricky whilst horse riding. It is definitely not recommended.
This is me on our boat, Khoka Moya, which means day-dreaming, or staring at the stars. The picture was taken in Turkey at about 6 am. We were setting off very early to do a long trip up the coast.
