Welcome to my bookshop! I'm an author who lives near beautiful Bristol and Bath with my assistance dog Lola and my husband who is a wildlife film editor. I've had two jobs - the first was post-production manager at a film-editing company in London which used to be part of Ridley Scott Associates, and children's writer and poet, poetry editor and film-maker!
I've written six books of my own, have edited another, and am in about 100 anthologies. I'm very proud to be a National Poetry Day Ambassador - poetry videos are available on my YouTube channel. Twitter = @Lizpoet, personal website here, website celebrating children's poetry as whole for children, teachers and parents, here.
My books are full of facts, fun, funny, fascinating and theme-led - Reaching the Stars is about Extraordinary Women and Girls, The Same Inside is a book of poems about kindness, empathy and friendship, Apes to Zebras is an A-Z of shape poems about animals, Be the Change is a book of poems about sustainability, with achievable tips for children on how to help save the world themselves. Coming in 2021 is Shaping the World, a book of shape poems about historical heroes, and Being Me, a book of poems about feelings, thoughts and worries.
My recommendations are books I've really read and enjoyed!
