Read For Empathy List 2023
Absolutely thrilled to announce that Call Me Lion has been selected by The Empathy Lab as one of their 2023 Read For Empathy books.
This is a huge honour and means that my little book with the big heart will reach further into schools, libraries and the hands of readers who need Leo and Richa in their lives.
You can see from the image above that Call Me Lion is in great company with some of the best children's books being published today.
The work of The Empathy Lab is inspirational and their message is that empathy is a skill that can be taught and using well told stories is one of the best ways to do that.

World Book Day Author Visits
Very excited to announce that I have three school visits booked for WBD week. This means that I still have two free days if you are reading this and would like to make a booking for your school please contact me to make it happen!
Not only am I visiting Hertford Heath, Codicote Primary and High Beeches, I am also thrilled to say that I have been invited to part of the World Book Day Hitchin Festival 2023 on Saturday 4 March. This is a children's book festival organised by a fabulous book shop called Next Page Books who have joined forces with British Schools Museum to bring something fabulous to Hitchin.
For me the best thing about being a Children's Author is meeting readers. I absolutely love doing author visits, particularly in schools so I am thrilled to be 'getting out there' again after the horrible covid years.
Welcome to my blog, a place where you can keep up to date with what I am up to.
