MY NEW BOOK CAN SUCH THINGS BE? IS OUT THIS MONTH...

I'm delighted to announce that my latest book Can Such Things Be? is being published this month (June).

Dedicated to the memory of my good friend Thomas-Toki Wartooth Mccall, it is packed with hilarious, revolting and unforgettable rhymes.

From a magpie with a love of all things poop to the ghost of William Shakespeare, readers will meet characters they won’t find elsewhere.

Imaginative, fun and hilarious, Can Such Things Be? is perfect for both reluctant readers and children who love to read. 

Reminiscent of authors such as Roald Dahl and David Walliams, Can Such Things Be? follows the success of my  previous children’s books. It will be enjoyed by young readers aged 7-11 years and those who enjoy humorous poetry.

"Very well written and perfect to encourage reading and creative writing."

 

 


INSPIRING THE NEXT GENERATION OF YOUNG READERS

One of the main reasons that I became an Author in the first place was to encourage and inspire children to read from a very early age.

It's something that I feel incredibly passionate about and is why I spend most of my time visiting both Primary and Secondary schools across the UK.

TERROR AT THE SWEET SHOP IS ON ITS SECOND PRINT RUN!

I'm delighted to announce that Terror at the Sweet Shop is now on its second print run after selling three-thousand copies since being published last year. From Newcastle to Oxford, the tale of sweet shop sabotage has been delighting 7-11 year-olds across the UK. 

Here's what a few of them have said about the story:

"You're an excellent author and I wish you all the best with the other books!"

"This is the perfect all year round book."
