I live in an old market town in Essex called Rayleigh, I work from my small studio at home. Most of my work has been for children’s book publishers in both the UK and the USA but I am spending more time these days on my own projects such as Sherbet Lane.Away from my paintbrushes, you can find me pottering in my garden, taking long rambles in the countryside or shouting my support for The Arsenal from my seat at the Emirates!
ABOUT Magination Press
In 1987, Magination Press® was created out of a desire to publish innovative books that would help children deal with the many challenges and problems they face as they grow up. Written for ages 4 through 18, these books deal with topics ranging from the everyday — starting school, shyness, normal fears, and a new baby in the house — to more serious problems, such as divorce, attention deficit disorder, depression, serious injury or illness, autism, trauma, death, and much more.
Most of our books are written by mental health professionals or those who work closely with them and with children. Our books help children understand their feelings, provide information about the topic or situation, and offer extensive practical coping strategies. A comprehensive Note to Parents is usually included to help guide parents, therapists, social workers, and teachers in using the book. Magination books are not preachy or didactic: They feature sensitive, lively, sometimes humorous writing, along with exquisite, evocative illustrations. They are a pleasure to look at and to read.
