I’m a British/New Zealand writer of all things but mostly I love to write children’s books that are set in wild places.

I’m a British/New Zealand writer of all things but mostly I love to write children’s books that are set in wild places. My debut novel is an adventure for 9+ year-olds called RUNNING ON THE ROOF OF THE WORLD. My second novel for middle-grade readers is called WHEN THE MOUNTAINS ROARED.

'Daring kids, sidekick yaks, Himalayan setting – all the ingredients of a smashing adventure'. — Abi Elphinstone

'There’s inevitably a political element to the story, pitched at just the right level, but this is also an exciting adventure with vivid descriptions of the landscape. A story relevant to the world that we live in today, told with compassion and understanding'. — The Guardian
