productions & background experience
Walter Speazlebud (O'Brien Press, 2001), Moonman (Egmont Books, UK, 2006), & Alien Timebomb (Egmont, UK, 2007).
My books to date are based around the character, Walter Speazlebud, a mildly dyslexic boy who has the power of noitanigami (imagination backwards) & can spell any word or name backwards. Coincidentally this is a talent I have too! I have entertained children for years now with my gift to teach backwards spelling & my spirited, entertaining readings.
Moon Man was nominated for the Stockport Children's Award in 2007 and was also nominated in the British Top 160 Books for Boys List. I also review books for Inis magazine.
