I grew up in the English countryside and have mostly stayed there since. Cities are marvellous but I lack a sense of direction and spend my time in them lost, admiring the clever little map on my mobile and wishing it meant something to me. Directions that involve turning right after the chicken shaped tree and left past the cows are much easier to follow.

 

I graduated from Loughborough University with a degree in Social Psychology and spent a couple of decades in marketing and technical authoring. This resulted in a full, well-rounded desire not to work in an office anymore.

 

A chance conversation with an app developer about a mutual love of plasticine animation led to me dusting off some stories and illustrations I’d been working on before I got distracted by motherhood. Since I’d written them, interactive picture book apps had come on the scene and offered the opportunity to properly bring the stories to life.

 

I now spend my life playing with plasticine and writing, while enjoying the fact my daughter is still too young to be properly embarrassed by me yet.
