I’m a writer and artist from London, now living on the Hampshire coast in England. My childhood revolved around animals; looking after pets and writing stories about them. A passion for the natural world led to a Zoology degree followed by a Masters in Animal Welfare. Writing then took a back seat as I set off to gain experience of working with different animals around the world. I trailed after the macaque monkeys in Gibraltar, as well as their monkey cousins in India, studied birds in Scotland, researched vultures in Namibia and spent ten weeks monitoring marine mammals from a boat in the Mozambique Channel. Currently I work part-time in a zoo and have finally returned to my favourite hobby – writing stories about animals. I’ve got two noisy budgies who do their best to put a stop to this.
