My books

My very first published book was ‘Girl with a White Dog’. Published by Catnip in 2014,  it was nominated for the Carnegie, long listed for the UKLA children’s book award, and shortlisted for the Little Rebels and Waterstones’ Children’s Book Prize.

The beautiful cover was illustrated by Serena Rocca and designed by Pip Johnson. The book was edited by Non Pratt and Liz Bankes and my agent was and is Anne Clark.




I was lucky enough to get some lovely reviews for ‘Girl with a White Dog’,

A clear and compassionate plea for tolerance.
