Hello!  5 Questions to know you better…

Perhaps most important – tea or coffee, or maybe hot chocolate?

Hot chocolate all the way, with marshmallows. I have quite the sweet tooth!

Of all the characters you have created, who is your favourite?

I have to say, I’m very excited about an upcoming character in my new book. His name is Little Bear, and he is adorable with such a big personality. But a close runner up would be Teensy the fairy, because I have always loved fairies and she is very stylish.

Do you have a particular place where you write – can you show us a picture?

Usually at my desk, my office is the most quiet place in my house.

Sure, here’s my view while writing!

Where do you find your inspiration and ideas?

Often thru children. I see what kinds of lessons we need more books to teach and I base my stories on one of those lessons. My previous books were inspired by children I knew while working in childcare, but now I find inspiration thru my beautiful baby girl.

What are you working on currently, and when can we expect to read it?

My newest book “Little Bear and his Chair” is scheduled to be released in January 2018. It’s going through the illustrating phase right now and I’m absolutely excited to share this story with the world. (ED – hope the launch has gone to plan x)
