About the Author

I have spent most of my career working in recruitment, learning & development roles and loved creating engaging, fun training sessions for my colleagues to enjoy. I was made redundant from my role in December 2019 and once I’d got over the worry and stress of not having any real work, I took the opportunity to enjoy my time at home with the kids. Home-schooling was probably one of the toughest jobs I have EVER had but how incredibly special was it to spend so much quality time with Brooke and Louis (they may not feel the same..lol!). When I wrote The North Pole Lockdown, at first it was just going to be for my kids as Iwanted to capture some of those important memories for them to always remember 2020 by. However, with the support of my family and Eloise Attenborough at Book Bubble Press I was able to turn my little story and scruffy drawings into an actual BOOK!  I’ve gone on to write a few other children’s stories, some inspired by the pandemic and others based on team work and emotions.  I love writing, I love being creative and I love making others happy and I just hope you’ll find my new stories as enjoyable.
