About This Author

I have long held the dream of writing my own books for children, that will excite and inspire and will be a little bit different. This Summer I finally found the time to do this. I wanted to create books with a twist, that would fire the imagination of children and involve them in the book. I am a Teacher and for many years have been seeking out books that aren't your normal run of the mill. I see far too many books that are. Over the years I have gained a very good understanding of what children enjoy through teaching, and through my own children. I have been able to identify gaps in the market, and I hope my books go some way to filling these gaps. My books for younger children focus on the idea of Doodle Adventures. These being books where the illustartions can be added to and can be coloured in, so your child becomes partly the illustrator. The adventure immerses your child in the book, by allowing them to make choices as to which path the journey takes, swapping between different pages, depending on their decisions. This gives your child ownership of the book. Depending on the decisions they make it will probably take them more than one attempt to reach to end of the adventure, which means they have more than one story to read within the book. My books for older children also contain illustrations to complete and to colour in. Again they contain adventure where your child can swap between pages to decide the path their journey takes, but there is no ending. The ending is up to your child. There are pages for your child to write, within templates, to complete the adventure in whatever way they choose, so not only are they part illustrator, they also become part author. These books aim to challenge and inspire. I hope you agree that they do.
