After practising corporate law in the City of London I changed direction, obtaining an MA in Arts Management from City University,London.
I am also the Chair of a reputable dance company and various other interests.
What are you working on at the moment?
A fantasy adventure chapter book for 5-8 year olds.
If you had to recommend just one children's book you've read in the last year, what would it be?
Against my instinct, it would have to be Beast Quest series as I have witnessed a number of reluctant little boys transformed into avid readers eagerly awaiting the next book. To pass on a love of books to the next generation is ultimately the best test of a children's book.
What is the most important thing you learned about writing or illustrating this year?
That allowing myself time for an idea to gestate is as enjoyable as writing.
Embrace criticism in an open minded way.
