My new book, A Cat-Shaped Space, is an illustrated collection of verse, something that’s often been requested whenever I do a live performance. All profits will go to Yorkshire Cat rescue – so it’s for a good cause as well! You can read more about it here

to my website

Welcome to my website folks. Please feel free to poke around.  I have newsappearance dateshow to order signed books, info about the books I’ve written, links to articles I’ve written and more.  There’s even interactive maps of the village of Wychwell and the Yorkshire Coast.  And do call back often as I often hold competitions and pass on any book bargains I find.

If you want to know a little more about what I write, please check on the book page. At the top of every individual book page are the links which will take you straight to Waterstones, Amazon, Independent bookshops etc.  

And do sign up for my newsletter – It comes out (usually) on the first of the month and is very short and chatty.  (It’s very easy to unsubscribe if you change your mind!)

Lots of love
