We fell in love with Astronaut Lamby, and were lucky enough to be able to buy the toys to go with the book, then we started Floga and have never looked back! Jude is a wonderful and creative writer and I’m thrilled she is our Writer of the Week.

I used to be a teacher who loved writing, now I’m an Author who loves storytelling. I’d always scribbled stories for the children in my class  or written the Christmas play or assemblies. My pen was always busy but I never imagined a time when I’d leave teaching.  But, six years ago, I left the chalk face following a period of stress and anxiety and set up my storytelling business Little Lamb Tales. Around the same time, I entered a competition to write a story about Winnie the Pooh and friends visiting my local area. This story went on to win and I was crowned The Disney Winnie the Pooh Laureate for the North West of England. I haven’t looked back.

My first picture book The Dragon of Allerton Oak was inspired by the real Allerton Oak in my local park Calderstones. Originally, this story started as an oral story that I told at events but at the end of one of my storytelling sessions, a little boy asked if I would put the story in a book. Out of the mouths of babes… This has always been one of my most popular books and even more so recently as the Allerton Oak is representing the whole of the UK in the European Tree of the Year competition. 

To date, I’ve written 18 books including picture books, chapter books and a collection of short stories for adults.  Many of my books feature Lamby, my storytelling mascot but I’ve also collaborated with some brilliant charities and businesses to write books about Mindfulness for Children, Awesome About Autism and Road Safety. My latest book ‘That’s Our Home’ launches in March and is all about keeping the beaches clean. I’m currently running a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for this book. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/endstreet/thats-our-home
