About me

I’ve written forty children’s books which have been translated into more than twenty languages.

My books range from The Pet Potato, a picture book illustrated by Momoko Abe, to early readers (The Dragonsitter) and chapter books (A Dog Called Grk, The Island of Thieves).

My most recent series is the Time Travel Twins – thrilling adventure stories intended to be enjoyed by children studying different historical periods: the Vikings, the Anglo-Saxons, the Romans, Boudicca, the Stone Age, the Maya.
