About the Author

I have been a writer and editor of children's non-fiction and educational books - including readers - for most of my career. Some of these books have been for African markets, following a period working in Kenya and another in Zimbabwe - with a short period in Namibia, too. I love finding out new things and writing about them, talking to experts in various fields - especially science - and generally sharing the enthusiasm people so often have for their life's work. I feel that way about writing. I enjoy writing fiction, too - especially readers for younger children. I'm currently working on a full-length novel and a non-fiction book for adults. I enjoy living in London, where I get the chance to hear good music, visit the theatre and take care of my garden. I have two cats, both very lazy.
