About

Hi all!

Thanks for visiting my page.  I am a writer based in lovely, sunny (well most of the time) Broughty Ferry in Dundee. I have three children and three rescue dogs! In between chasing after everyone, I try to squeeze in precious writing time.  I’ve written a few books so far, The Fourth Bonniest Baby in Dundee (Shortlisted for the Bookbug Picture Book Prize), The Revenge of Tirpitz (Cranachan), This Bonny Baby (Kelpies) and Animal Adventure Club, The Baby Deer Rescue (Kelpies).

Before I started writing, I was a primary school teacher. I taught for many years in Edinburgh before returning to college to study Drama and Theatre Arts.  I specialised in Arts Journalism and I discovered that I loved writing! I wrote a few reviews/previews for The List magazine before relocating Dundee where we now live.

I have a new picture book due out 2019 about the famous Edinburgh Skye Terrier – Greyfriars Bobby: A Puppy’s Tale (Kelpies), the second Animal Adventure Club book: The Baby Otter Rescue and into 2020, another picture book, Extraordinary Women of the Bible (SPCK).

Thanks again for visiting,
