When I’m not hanging out with the local magpie population, I use my forty years of experience working with children in social/emotional well-being to cultivate and underpin my writing to create children’s books that touch and tickle hearts.
I have extensive experience working with schools and am no stranger to doing presentations with children. A champion of well-being for children, I have been called an affirmative vandal and a hooligan of hope.
Based on my books, my workshops are fun and engaging with marshmallow cannons, button pressing, Chinese lanterns, magpies, willie wagtails, echidnas and comedy.
Topics include kindness, friendships, emotional literacy, journaling, creative and descriptive writing, show don’t tell, the art of writing funny stuff, and using humour to introduce literary devices.
