Short biography
I was born in Lancashire, and grew up reading a lot of books and writing endless stories. Until 2015 I worked for literature charity Book Trust as a children's books specialist and project manager of the Children's Laureate, working with leading children's authors such as Malorie Blackman, Julia Donaldson and Chris Riddell.

I am also part of the founding team behind Down the Rabbit Hole, a monthly show on arts radio station Resonance 104.4FM about children's literature.

My books THE MYSTERY OF THE CLOCKWORK SPARROW and THE MYSTERY OF THE JEWELLED MOTH are inspired by my love of classic children's adventure stories, E Nesbit, Frances Hodgson Burnett, Enid Blyton and Nancy Drew. I'm also a contributor to MYSTERY & MAYHEM - an anthology of crime stories for young readers.
