My picture book, The Glint of Gold is due out on 1st September, 2021. The first day of

Spring! It is published by Little Pink Dog Books and beautifully illustrated by Patricia Ward

It follows a child as she uncovers the golden moments found in each day.

It is a story to inspire mindfulness, gratitude and hope. The themes contained in

The Glint of Gold feel particularly relevant in this COVID era. 


The Glint of Gold is available to pre-order from the publishers at:

It is also available to pre-order through other online outlets or by ordering it in at your local bookshop - a lovely way to support local businesses during these tricky COVID times! 

I am currently working away on other manuscript ideas. I can be spotted pulling over to the

roadside in my car, madly jotting ideas down before they fly out the window behind me. 

My favourite children's books are way too numerous to mention and there are always more being added to the list! However, the two picture books I cannot live without are Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge (Fox & Vivas) and a story that's even older than me, Amos & Boris (Steig). An odd fact is that my son is named "Amos" but I promise he is not named after a mouse. And no, my daughter is not named "Boris".

I believe reading is one of the most glorious and daring things we can do. Here's to being glorious and daring!
