Welcome to my website

doloresI love words: the sound of words, the sense and the nonsense of them. I’ve always enjoyed making up stories, writing poems, or just playing around with words for the fun of it.

Words are good for you. With words you can explain how you’re feeling and what you’re feeling. With words you can help other people feel good – or show that you understand how it feels to feel bad. You can explain clever ideas and difficult problems and invite the world to inhabit your weird and wonderful imaginings.

I write stories and poems for children and I help children write their own stories and poems through articles and workshops.

Thank you for visiting. Please stay and look around.
