I am based in Devon. I started my working career as a teacher, and then I moved into the business world. I have worked in local government. More recently I have retired and now spend my time writing for children and undertaking voluntary work.

My first book for children is called Archie, Jump! and it was published by Matador. I have just finished a second book, entitled Archie, Wait! I expect to complete a third and final book in the series soon.

I have been inspired to write children’s books as I feel passionate about children learning to read at a young age. I am a Governor at a local primary school and regularly help children with their reading.
