About

I've had over eighty books published, all but one of them for children. Picture books, early readers, junior novels, series fiction, commissions and the story projects I dream up for myself.
Picture book 'You Choose' is perhaps my best known book, illustrated by Nick Sharrat, and now with sales of over a million copies and recently chosen by the people of York as 'the best picture book of all time' .... and that was a book which was turned down by nine publishers before it found a home! I also write the Winnie the Witch stories under a fake name, plus much more.
I mix writing, with teaching how to write for children, and with visits to primary schools where I work with children from four to eleven. I also have a life beyond all that - family and friends and the usual.

    Hi Pip, I have just visited your website and read your page 'About me'
    I loved your memories and when I read about 'school dinners' I instantly had a flashback from my own experience of school dinners. I actually smelt them. Not a very nice smell. I write rhyming picture books for enjoyment. When I look back at my first attempts they are rubbish but hopefully I am getting better. I have two posts on the critique forum at the moment and would be thrilled if you could take a look. Thanks, Kim x
