About me

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

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?
