About me

I’m a writer for children and teenagers. I’ve written a lot of books, on all sorts of things. Things like mermaids, fairies, cars, teenagers, princesses and super heroes, plus heaps of other subjects I’ve probably forgotten.

Ten Facts About Me:

1. I’m a walking disaster area and completely accident prone. My nose got broken in a tickling fight and my toe got broken while I ranted about waffles. While I was seven months pregnant, my arm ended up in a plaster cast after an incident opening a window.

2. My favourite words are eclectic and catkin.

3. I’m still waiting to grow. I aspire one day to reach the dizzy heights of 5’2″.

4. I can quote far too many lines from Friends and am freakishly good at remembering song lyrics. I’m sure this part of my brain could be doing much more useful things.

5. I’ve done a heap of random jobs. These include making and stuffing 500 crackers full of beauty products, selling Christmas hampers, writing copy for a mail order catalogue, a lot of telephone answering, and covering hundreds of library books with sticky-backed plastic. I’ve been a teacher, a researcher, and worked in PR.

6. I’m told my current celebrity lookalike is Tina Fey. When I was at school, it was Christina Ricci as Wednesday in The Addams Family. At university, it was the twins from B*witched. (Google them. I couldn’t wear dark denim for years)

7. My favourite number is four. Even numbers are better than odd. Just because, okay?

8. My eyes change colour. Some days they’re brown, some days they’re green, and sometimes they’re hazel.

9. The one and only time I went skiing, I got stuck in a snowdrift trying to take a short cut, and had to be pulled out by the ski instructor.

10. My party trick is the ability to fluently mirror write. I would show you, but it doesn’t really work on a keyboard.
