About me

As a writer, my bylines include The Guardian, The Herald, Time Out and The List.

As a book editor, I've worked for Scholastic Children's Books, Floris Books, Canongate, Black & White and Faber & Faber.

I'm the director of The Lighthouse Children's Literary Consultancy which gives editorial feedback and advice to new authors.

I'm the author of three children's books, Elspeth Hart and the School for Show-offs Elspeth Hart and the Perilous Voyage, and Elspeth Hart and the Magnificent Rescue. I'm happy to visit schools or do creative writing workshops.

I write poetry too, and some of my work can be found here:
