Hello! This is me proudly holding a copy of my second novel for 9-12 year olds –‘Dog Ears’, which was published in 2015 and shortlisted by Lambeth children for the Phoenix award. I am lucky enough to be represented by agent Anne Clark. I was first published in 2014 and I’ve published seven books in all so far – three picture books with Nosy Crow, (including ‘Refuge’, raising awareness of and money for refugees by drawing parallels with the Christmas story) , three books for 5-8 year olds with OUP, and another book for 9-12 year olds, the Carnegie nominated and Waterstones’ Children’s Book Prize shortlisted ‘Girl with a White Dog’. I have four more picture books with Lion coming out in the next year or so (the first, ‘I want a Friend’ with illustrator Amy Proud is in March 2017) , another Lucy book for 5-8 year olds October 2017, and some other top secret and exciting projects. And I LOVE my job!
