Who am I?
Hi there! I’m Fiona, a middle-aged, married mum of one. I am positively potty about picturebooks; reading them, writing them and talking about them. When writing, I long for alliterative loveliness. When reading, I look for the marriage of words and artwork and I love anything that is fun to read aloud.
I self-published my first picturebook ‘Amelie and the Great Outdoors’ in April 2016 with Matador Books. Then I went and got a taste for it and my second book Danny and the Dream Dog came out in Oct 2018 with Tiny Tree Children’s Books. It went on to become their best selling title for 2018! You can order your copy of Danny here. I’m represented by Alice Williams. Watch this space for updates!
What I care about
If you love picture books then we are going to get on!
I’m especially enthusiastic about encouraging reading habits. I recently completed a PhD (successfully!) where I was lucky enough to study the theory behind the onset and maintenance of behaviour. This is so applicable to reading and it is lovely now to be able to combine my academic and professional enthusiasms.
I love the outdoors and support several organisations that seek to encourage children to engage with the natural world including The Wildlife Trusts and the Marine Conservation Society. I spend a lot of time in Devon and love the sea.
