Welcome. Mostly I write about, teach and do ecology - for children and adults.
I've been collaborating recently with fellow author Sean Taylor plus artists Cinyee Chiu and Sarah Edmonds.
Our latest book, 'Funny Bums, Freaky Beaks & Other Incredible Creature Features' is a Guardian top pick in children’s non fiction and it’s become an Amazon No 1 Best Seller in zoology.
’Busy Spring: Nature Wakes Up' was also published in 2021. It is a popular follow up science story book in a series - the first was Winter Sleep: A Hibernation Story, which was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal & chosen as the recommended #PowerOfReading years 1 & 2 science and literacy book, by the Children's Literacy in Primary Education charity.
Winter Sleep has sold out, but the paperback edition arrives on Sept 7, 2021. A Summer book in this series is coming in 2022.
I was also a consultant editor on the ‘The Most Important Animal of All’ by Penny Worms & Hannah Bailey, coming on July 29. It’s been endorsed by the British Ecological Society & some profits go to help under represented young people kickstart careers in ecology.
I am also a qualified NUJ journalist (30 years), ecologist (18 years), environmental scientist & tutor. Sometimes in BBC Wildlife magazine, The Guardian, Independent, Ecologist, Ecohustler and a few others.
The search bar at the top helps you find lots more books by other authors. Writers, artists and bookshops receive a share of the profits from books sold on this site. My links below offer some nature book ideas from me and others.
