I'm a Montessori teacher and educational children's book author. I write books and create resources for Montessori classrooms and homeschools. Thanks for stopping by.

Tell us a little bit about yourself, your hobbies and interests.

I've been a teacher for over 25 years, mostly in Montessori classrooms. I'm an environmentalist - have solar panels, drive a Leaf and am vegan. I love spending time in nature - walking, camping. And, of course, I love reading and books.

When and why did you start writing books?

I've considered writing children's books for many years, but only got round to making it happen at the beginning of 2023.

Which one of your books or characters is your favourite?

My favorite character is a crazy cat called Colin. He is based on a calico cat who regularly visits my garden.

Which one of your books was the hardest to write and stretched you the most as a writer?

My pink reader series was challenging because of the limited amount of words available for the genre - CVC words with short vowel sounds. I had to work extra hard to create amusing cohesive storylines working within the limitations necessary to provide these easy beginning readers for young children who are just beginning their reading journey.

Who is your favourite author and book?

For adult books I can't choose between Jane Austen and Diana Gabaldon. For children's books, I love the work of Lynley Dodd.

What book are you reading right now?

A regency romance by Kate Westwood - A Bath Affair

Where do you get your inspiration for your books?

From the children I teach and the needs of my classroom

Do you have any new books in the works?

Always - not enough hours in the day to get to all my ideas for books. The next books I will be working on are a "Blue Readers" series to complement my "Pink Readers" series and another book in my Emergent Literacy series to join "My Crazy Cat Colin", which will be entitled, "Ruby and Robin, the Rascally Rabbits".
