Children’s Books

Having finished writing all four books in The Fairy in the Kettle series, I’m now focusing on other projects.

I have created a brand new picture book character and that manuscript has joined the queue for the illustrator. This new character has been great fun to create and I can’t wait to share her with you. But, first, I have another adult fiction novel to finish.

The Fairy in the Kettle tells the story of the protagonist, Leona, and why she loves living in her unusual home. Set in Bramble Glen, the illustrated picture book series then continues to follow the adventures of Leona and her three best friends, Tilly, Robbie, and Toby. These books are aimed at 4 to 8-year-olds and have all received 5-star reviews.
