I was a primary school teacher for almost 20 years, and often found that stories and drama were the perfect way to engage children’s interest and to spark their own creativity. Storytelling has gradually taken over my life, so that I am now a full time children’s writer and storyteller. Princess Imogen’s Independent Day was published in October 2013 by Walker Books in The Book of Bedtime Stories.
With the illustrator Sara Gibbeson
I’m always on the lookout for a moment of magic that can be transformed into a new story. When a story is ready to share, I love taking it into schools, nurseries, playgroups and libraries. Children participate in the storytelling, and I am always thrilled by their enthusiasm. Visits can be tailored to meet the needs of different groups and I am happy to discuss plans prior to each session.
