I was born in Liverpool the eldest of 5 children, I now live in Aughton, Lancashire.

This is the first book I have written and I have dedicated it to the memory of my late mother, Marjorie.

My mum loved children especially her grandchildren, I often found her playing games with them right up into her 80yrs.
I hope you enjoy the book with the knowledge that you are supporting my favourite childrens charity Alder Hey Hospital.

Thank You.


When Sue came across me, I'd just been rescued by Fishcake Harry after sleepwalking to the top of the Eiffel Tower.

I have always enjoyed drawing [see the backs of my school books!] and this sort of job was fun to do.

I have lived in the NW of England for forty years - having been brought up in Australia.
