Hello! I am a picture book author and my stories are often inspired by real-world events or experiences.
The Last Garden, illustrated by Anneli Bray, published by Hodder & Stoughton, is a thoughtful and tender story of hope, inspired by real gardens made in wartime around the world and throughout history. Anneli was recently longlisted for the Klaus Flugge Prize for her illustrations for The Last Garden.
The Forgettery, illustrated by Laura Hughes, published by Egmont, captures the wonderful bond between grandmother and granddaughter and Laura conjures up an exciting, wondrous space where our most precious memories are stored, and the challenge of dementia can be gently explored and understood.
