Biography

I live in Cambridge UK and write and illustrate picture books. I’ve been doing it for a long time and have been shortlisted for awards in the UK including the Kate Greenaway Medal and I won the US Parent’s Guide to Children’s Media Award for Outstanding Achievement in Children’s Books.

I love dogs but sadly haven’t got one so I put them in my books. ‘ Dog on Wheels’ is the first of three books about Dubbin and his doggie friend, Todd, who always gets into trouble. ‘Dog on Wheels at Sunny Sea’ is the next one, just published by Troika and ‘Dog on Wheels Goes Snowboarding’ will be coming out next year. It’s amazing what a dog can do with his skateboard!
