Originally from New Zealand, I’m an ex nanny and now mother to two young children and a newly adopted senegal parrot named Jerry. Years of reading to the children in my care has turned me into a raving picture book fanatic!  I have an absolute passion for heartwarming and funny stories, gorgeous illustrations and clever rhyming, and I hope to emulate my heroes Julia Donaldson, Lynley Dodd and Dr Seuss – a very grand ambition indeed.
