About me

I started out as an actress and got into writing through doing stand-up comedy.  I wrote first for TV (including episodes of My Parents are Aliens and There's a Viking in my Bed) and radio (including dramatisations of Jacqueline Wilson's The Story of Tracy Beaker and The Dare Game).  I've also written animation episodes for Horrid Henry, Little Princess and Guess with Jess.  The first children's books I wrote were for 9 - 12 year olds: The Boys' Club, Big Bones and Anna/Bella.  Then I started to write with Jennifer Gray and we have written 9 books for 5 - 8 year olds: 6 Guinea Pigs Online, 2 Puppies Online and Magicat.

I live in south-east London with my husband and we have two grown-up sons.  We also have an adorable, tiny rescue cat called Slippa.
