Observer review

My publicist emailed me this clipping from the July Observer. Not only was it a great review, but ‘Bob & Rob’ was compared to one of the most celebrated burglar books ever; Allan Ahlberg’s ‘Burglar Bill’. Career pinnacle…check!

A delightful example of living art (or the Praying Mantis’s preferred mode of transport).

Book share

How fantastic to see children enjoying my story! Here are Coco and Noah getting stuck into ‘Bob & Rob’.

Winning work of art

In response to a brief presented by Cosmetics Business Awards organisers, I created the unique winner’s awards for this year’s charity event at the London Film Museum. Proceeds went to the Katie Piper Foundation. Working alongside Andy Hopper – Artist Blacksmith – we delivered a contemporary design with mirror polished shooting stars on intertwined stems.

A cut above the rest

I’ve wanted to own one of these delicate papercuts for years but never fell in love with any…until now! My talented artist friend Katherine Anteney at Red Hot Press produces these along with hand bound books and prints.

Ta-daaaa, I’m published!

I’m proud to announce that my first children’s book ‘Bob and Rob’, a comic caper about a robber and his dog, is in print. Who’d have thought that an initial fanciful idea would become reality? I kept my original copy of ‘Writers’ and Artists’ Yearbook 2003′ on the shelf, which served as a constant reminder to never to give up my dream of writing and illustrating children’s stories – any excuse to stay a big kid!
