My author’s notes can be found here, and teaching notes with curriculum links and class activities will be added soon.

I am always happy to be contacted if you’d like to engage me for school visits (in-person or virtual), workshops or other events.

Upon release, my books can be found in local independent bookshops and libraries – and if they’re not there yet, you can help by requesting them. Bookshops and libraries are vital to our community. They help authors by hosting book launches, story time, workshops, author talks and book clubs. And they are run by hard-working folk who are passionate about books. Thank you for supporting them!
