Hello, earthlings! I’m an award-winning children’s author and scientist from London, UK.
I work in clinical research (developing new medicines) and I’m also about to finish my PhD. I enjoy my science career but I also have a real passion for writing stories! I like introducing children to the wonders of science, especially reluctant readers. By introducing science creatively, I aim to spark their interest; allowing them to gain confidence with their reading. As a previous reluctant reader myself, I understand how hard it can be. But it’s all about making reading fun and interesting!
My first picture book, Praxx and the Ringing Robot, won second prize in the ‘Picture Books 5 and Younger’ category at the Purple Dragonfly Book Awards 2017. The book trailer also won first place in the ‘book trailer’ category at the Royal Dragonfly Book Awards 2017!
I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I enjoyed writing them!
