I write teacher resources for primary school, children's illustrated non-fiction and educational fiction.
I also have a regular column in Writers' Forum about authors and the research they do for their books.
What are you working on at the moment?
At the moment, I am working on a commission for AudioGo, BBC audio books, re-writing fairy tales.
If you had to recommend just one children's book you've read in the last year, what would it be?
Diary of a Wimpy Vampire, Prince of Darkness by Tim Collins. It is very funny.
What is the most important thing you learned about writing or illustrating this year?
Follow your dream. You can't achieve your aims by putting things off.
