Welcome to my website. Thanks for stopping by.
Here you can find out about me, my poems for young people and the books they appear in.
I’m really excited to share with you my first book of poems for children, Saturdays at the Imaginarium. It’s all about exploring the amazing potential of our imagination. When I was growing up, people would sometimes say, Y’know your trouble? Too much imagination! Or, Quit daydreaming and get real! You see, a lot of people seem to think that the imagination is mostly just for kids and poets, or for artists and dreamers, that it’s something a bit silly. But the imagination is an essential part of being human, and we’d be lost without it! Here’s a trailer that explains a bit more…
In the Imaginarium extras blog you can discover some creative ideas and exercises based on poems in the book.
There’s also a peek behind the scenes into the making of the book, and some audio recordings and videos too.
I hope you enjoy them!
