lustration from Does Butter Fly by Flick Jones


Since leaving education, I worked as a secretary and PA, predominantly for Lloyds Bank and latterly at Cardiff City Council.

My writing career began as a self-published author of children’s books.  Titles include, Woofaway – A Very Busy Dog, Pretty Nasty and The Bike.

In 2017 The Foundling Fairy and Does Butter Fly? were published by Pegasus. These were followed by Fred Bear – A Very Threadbare Bear, published in 2023 by Austin Macauley.

Magic is a book, a bed and a story well read.”
