This is my studio where I write & a little bit about some of the stories for kids & picture books I am working on.
‘Seven Brothers’ is a picture story book about an old wolf who lives alone in the forest. He knows he is not as strong or as fast as he used and the young mountain lions will soon be strong enough to hunt him. But this old wolf is clever and he uses clever tricks to outsmart the hungry lions. The text is in rhyme and at the moment, I am experimenting with block printing & water colors for the illustrations. This story was ‘Highly Commended’ in the 2014 CYA Conference Competition.
‘Black Dog Brown Dog’ is a fun rhyming picture book text which was ‘Winner’ in the Pass It On Verse Stories for Children & ‘Runner Up’ in the Kids Book Review Unpublished Manuscript. It is a story about how much chaos one little family pet can cause.
‘Living Next to Dr Death’ is a 3 book series of middle grade fiction novels, the first book placed 2nd in the 2015 CYA Conference Competition. This page turning series about friendship follows the adventures of Skeet as he tries to keep a good friend, lose a bad friend & steer clear of his strangely morbid neighbour, Dr Death.
