Hello, I am a writer and I also do supply work in schools.
I have worked with children for over 30 years. I was a children/schools worker for the London City Mission and created many short stories as part of RE lessons and for holiday clubs.
I'd describe myself as a kid in a adult body with a head full of stories. I love stories, reading them and making them up. I was happy to write stories as a hobby and as part of my work. With The Song of the Seraphim, my first novel, I decided to publish it and the response has encouraged me to continue the story, so I am currently writing the sequel. I am also writing a young children's picture book.
The process of creating a story can be long and hard but extremely rewarding.
The Song of the Seraphim was aimed at 9-14s but younger children and many adults have enjoyed it.
I think that books should appeal to all ages and it's okay to read kid's books if you're an adult, so I don't like sticking an age tag on my book - if you can read it - then do so!
