I write children’s fiction and educational materials. On winning a competition in 2007, I was commissioned to write three short stories, The Ghost Twin Tales, for the anthology, Mini Mysteries and Kooky Spookies.

On this occasion, my prize winning entry Munch, The Storytelling Cow was recorded as a podcast by celebrity presenter Gail Porter. More of my short stories for children, including a narrative poem, appeared in the UCLan press publication Letters To Africa.

Educational publications are Speaking English, a self-help guide to spoken English for non-native speakers with Studymates, as well as Key Stage 3 poetry resource packs and a Guide to Creative Writing Workshops for A Level with Zig Zag Publications.
