About this author

I am so lucky to spend my time working with books and stories. I work one day a week running groups for babies, toddlers and their parents at a local library; I spend two days a week writing and six days a week as publisher at the tiny independent publisher, Alanna Books.
In my spare time, I read - what a wonderful life!
There are some Children's Books on my shelves (obviously) but for a more comprehensive selection of children's recommendations, look at Lulu's shelves:

Qiana My eternal thanks for writing such a lovely, lovely story. I am still reading "Lola" to my daughter. It remains one of our favorite "before bed" books!
