Sometimes I like to sit with my children and eat chocolate while we talk about their day. They’re happiest when their day has been filled with art, sport, and music and when their mum really feels like chocolate so they don’t need to have a healthy after-school snack like normal.
Along with three excellent kids, I live with a sporty husband and a dog named Mango who delights in running away with my socks. We live in Australia, which is good, because I love the beach and hot, sunny days.
I write children’s books because they’re the best kind. I write about the places I go, the things I see, and the people I meet along the way. I enjoy writing stories that are honest and fun. I write picture books that grown-ups and children can share together. That’s the very special thing about picture books.
