I have been writing children’s stories for over five years and Scaredy is my first published book. Children give me inspiration to use my own imagination to write in the style I produce.
My stories are usually a little quirky, unusual and fun. Some of my titles include, ‘Mr Centipede’, ‘The Creature Tree’ and ‘I Want to Save the World’.
Ideas for my stories are usually derived from children communicating with each other, the environment, animals, insects and my own childlike imagination. My stories are also influenced from personal experience as a mother of four and now a Grandmother. My stories appeal to all age groups, but is aimed at lower primary.
Local primary schools have expressed interest in my stories and have invited me to conduct a presentation of my work. One primary school used one of my stories as part of a literacy unit with one class illustrating one of my stories as part of a class project.
I am currently producing an audio book version of ‘Scaredy’, voiced by myself.
I get a great deal of pleasure from writing my stories and will continue to enjoy writing many more.
I hope you love Scaredy as much as I do.
