As another World Book Day passes us by

As another World Book Day passes us by it’s been great to see so many children, parents, and schools embracing the world of books. I would like to give a huge thank you to the parents who contacted me through my website and social media pages with pictures and stories of their children dressing up as Leona from The Fairy in the Kettle series…lovely to see some kettles finishing off the costumes nicely too! 

It’s been a busy week for authors with many carrying out school visits and bringing the world of their books to children across the country. I also had some exciting news to share on the day as the cover was revealed for my latest picture book, The Fairy in the Kettle Gets Magical

Once again Debbie Bellaby has done an amazing job of bringing my story to life with her wonderful illustrations and I am looking forward to sharing some of those with you soon.

The Fairy in the Kettle


“They could remember the warm amber glow shimmering and sparkling as it danced through the air. Twisting and turning as it went.”

When Leona was woken early one morning, she knew something had to be wrong. But as she rushed to meet the elders nothing could prepare her for what she was about to hear. Life in Fairy Glen was about to change…the word’s fairy dust were echoing in the air!


The Fairy in the Kettle Gets Magical will be published on 7th May. It is already available to pre-order from Waterstones and will also be available to pre-order from Amazon and Barnes and Noble in the not-too-distant future.

Watch this space for a list of upcoming Waterstones events as I will be sharing those dates with you very soon.
