Working from cabin on a hill surrounded by trees I write and illustrate stories. These stories often become picture books. My books have been published in twelve countries and translated into ten languages. As well as writing my own books, I’ve illustrated for several acclaimed Australian and US authors. I’ve been shortlisted twice with a further five notably listed books in the Australian Children’s Book Council’s Picture Book of the Year.

More details for this book coming soon.
