Please note, I will ONLY accept books suitable for children. My preference is middle grade, as that is the age range of my own writing, but I will happily read chapter books and will consider picture books.

What I have learned this year…
Last night, I went to my writing group which is made up of teachers from across the region. It is run by a former lecturer/tutor on the course, who is undeniably passionate about writing and in particular, writing for pleasure. One of the exercises that we did was to reflect on this past academic yearContinue reading “What I have learned this year…”

And so the journey has arrived at its conclusion. Or maybe it’s better said that this section of the journey has. The book is now available at Amazon! It has been a long labour of love and devotion, and I have loved every minute (mostly!) I hope you enjoy it. Please leave a review andContinue reading “Announcement: From the Cave Wall available for purchase now!”
When I first conceived of the idea of writing a curriculum-supporting children’s novel, I has recently left the education world behind me. Making that decision to walk away from my single greatest focus and passion was gut-wrenching at the time, but I do not regret it for one second. Many people still ask me whetherContinue reading “Facing Fears”

I wanted to create a club for all my readersContinue reading “Become a Source Detective…?”

This morning I have set my goal… In one month, From the Cave Wall: A Stone Age Story will be available to buy from all good book-selling websites beginning with A, which offerContinue reading “The countdown begins…”
Timeline…a fun addition!
I have just added a timeline here on my website – wow it’s interesting. It’s so large that it is almost impossible to read on the screen. Luckily, the page describes what is in the image and there is a downloadable version for a more detailed view. This has been my project as a partContinue reading “Timeline…a fun addition!”
The deep end
Having made this decision to self-publish, I am now having to confront my near-crippling fears that I’m not good enough. We all have anxiety (particularly when facing the unknown) but somehow I have managed to convince myself it’s a good idea to throw myself into the deep end and…I have just never been ANY goodContinue reading “The deep end”
A new website…and an apology…
As is obvious if you are reading this, I have dramatically changed and updated the website to reflect my work and the plunge that I am going to be taking in a few weeks… I have decided that I am going to self-publish From the Cave Wall. This means that I am going to beContinue reading “A new website…and an apology…”
Down the Rabbit Hole: Stone Age Research
Over the last week, I have been down the rabbit hole! I started properly writing last week. I am now at 2 complete chapters. This may not seem much, but my feelings of accomplishment are enhanced by the amount of research and “setting” I have been able to do. When approaching a story about theContinue reading “Down the Rabbit Hole: Stone Age Research”
