Libraries and bookshops

Since becoming a professional author and illustrator I have visited many libraries and bookshops to share my own work and stories by others. 

I was delighted when I was asked to be Waterstones' first Resident Children’s Author, and had great fun meeting lots of children at our regular creative sessions in Liverpool. 

I’ve worked with some wonderful librarians too, people who, like myself, care passionately about books and reading. 

I’ve organised and delivered a wide range of themed activity sessions to encourage children of all ages to enjoy books and relish reading.   

I’ve been part of World Book Day, The Summer Reading Challenge and local literary events. 

Please see my testimonials page to read some of the good things people have said about me and my work.

If you have a bookshop or work in a library and would like to team up to deliver a creative event, then please contact me
