My Occupation retired PrimaryTeacher librarian
My Bio I'm a retired teacher. I have worked at Blackfriars Priory School for 16 years as a Primary school teacher librarian. Now I spend time with my gorgeous grandchildren. I have always loved stories. Harry Potter, Dr Who, Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit are my favourites. I have read a huge number of children's books over the years. I love a good story and find myself wanting to make some of my own.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
We all have a favourite place to spend our holidays. Our family has been fortunate that uncle Tim has generously allowed the entire extended family to relax at his beach house. It became the meeting place for the family for years.
This story "The Salvern" is inspired by this lovely place and the antics of family members over the years.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
The artist, Cathy Jacobs has her own website at Etsy called "Sheer joy" She creates lovely art work for people's homes all around the world.
Her collage art for this book is delightful, quirky and endearing..
The koala and Crow series is illustrated by her.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
My grand nieces and grand nephews have enjoyed this book and the sequel which is to follow. They have a chapter read to them at bedtime But they often can't wait and have the whole story at one sitting. Enjoy.
