Hello! I am an award-winning children's poet / guitarist, educational writer and INSET provider. I travel all over the UK and abroad to Primary schools, libraries and literary festivals to give fun, lively performances (poetry and guitar music) and workshops - as well as Gifted & Talented Writers' Days and INSET sessions in poetry writing / performing / story writing.

To date I have written over twelve poetry titles (Macmillan, Francis Lincoln, Walker Books etc) and five creative writing books for teachers (Bloomsbury/Taylor & Francis). I'm a a former lecturer in Creative Writing at Reading University and I was the main contributor of materials to the BBC programme Poetry Pie on CBeebies.

I'm Oxfordshire-based and can easily reach anywhere in the South East for the start of the school day. I don't mind very early starts! I generally travel by train, and if a long distance from Oxfordshire I will need to travel up the night before and stay in a cheap hotel such as a Travelodge or Premier Inn.

I visit schools with the express intention of (hopefully!) motivating, inspiring and giving confidence to young writers. Whilst visiting a school in Cheltenham, an Ofsted inspector gave me an ‘Outstanding’! Please do visit my website for more details!
