About me

Hello, I’m from London and I live in Cambridge. My first three books, The Girl with the Parrot on her Head, ALPHONSE, THAT IS NOT OK TO DO! and Hilda and the Runaway Baby are published by Walker Books in the UK (see Books for translated and US editions). I DO NOT LIKE BOOKS ANYMORE! a second book featuring Natalie and Alphonse (of ALPHONSE THAT IS NOT OK TO DO!) will follow in May 2018.

I have a MA in Children’s Book Illustration from Cambridge School of Art and a BA in English and Creative Writing from Warwick. Did you know I made a boat?
