About Me

A graphic designer/illustrator-turned author from Cannock, Staffordshire, I decided to start writing my own children’s educational & story books. It’s great sense of achievement producing a book that child love and want to interact with.

I studied Graphic Design at Wolverhampton University and graduated in 1998. Over the years I have worked within the graphic design and web design industry, working inhouse, agency & freelance. Producing anything from packaging to corporate identities, websites to  book designs.

I love the work I do, taking jobs from idea to completion. Its a strong sense of achievement getting the finished product back. I found myself wanting to do more, wanting to combine the skills that I have gathered in children’s books and in a joint project with Heather Spedding, we produced a set of Inner Emotion Guidance Cards. This gave me the opportunity  to explore my illustration skills and then moving on to producing my own books.

Charlie the Parrot – Adventure in the Jungle was my first book self-published,. Which I wrote about a family pet. There is a follow up book to this, where Charlie the Parrot – Visits the Farm, which I’m still working on at the moment.  My next book was The Adventures of Edward the Worm, followed by Flo the Fish – The Hiccupping Fish
With so many ideas, it doesn’t stop there. I also have Danny Bear & Family and The Poo Shark. All being worked on at the moment and are hoping to get then finished soon, so please keep checking for my next release.
