A children's writer
Motivational and corporate writer
And, soon to be novelist
'There is more pleasure to building castles in the air
than on the ground' - Edward Gibbon
I write children, Christian and motivational books and stories to encourage
resilience, self exploration, self belief and accountability. I also write English curriculum with an 'accessible to all' mindset.
