About me

I am a lecturer for two undergraduate Creative Writing modules - CS6006: Planning and Writing a Novel for Young People and CS5006: Reading as a Writer. I am also a tutor for the MA Writing for Young People.

I was a children’s book editor for the first ten years of my working life, holding editorial and commissioning roles at HarperCollins and Macmillan Publishers. I then went freelance and was an editor for Puffin, Bloomsbury, Macmillan and Piccadilly Press.

I have been a published author for nearly twenty years, specialising in writing for children and young people. My books have been chosen as World Book Day titles, shortlisted for library awards such as the Lancashire and Hull Awards and have been chosen for the Richard and Judy Book Club and the Summer Reading Challenge.

Three years ago I set up a local book festival in Bradford on Avon library with other children’s authors.

I am also a tutor for the Arvon Foundation and run workshops in schools, promoting literacy and creative writing.

Areas of expertise:

Editing, tutoring and mentoring in all areas of Creative Writing for children and young people.
