Award-Winning Writer,
Illustrator and
Reluctant Superhero


This is my "official" website where you can read all sorts of random stuff about me and I can pretend to be grown-up for a change.

For Writers

I’ve written far more blogs and articles for writers than I can count! You can find many of them at Notes from the Slushpile.

As Blog Network Editor of the SCBWI Words & Pictures magazine, I write a fortnightly round-up of the best writing blogs, which is handy if you don’t have much time: The Blog Break

Generally, I would recommend that all children’s writers join the SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) – it’s the most supportive organisation I’ve ever been in and offers great opportunities to get published. You can find more information at the SCBWI Website.
