My flash fiction Flat was published in the 2017 anthology, City of Stories by Spread the Word.

I’ve written and solo-published two children’s books, The Rare Monkey with the Colourful Bottom and The Rare Monkey Can’t, Couldn’t, Can! The latter was shortlisted for the Children’s Rubery Book Award 2017.

Both books are illustrated by actor Jeffrey Mundell More info on The Rare Monkey books at

I’m hoping to publish more stories soon.

The Rare Monkey with the Colourful Bottom

The Rare Monkey is the only monkey in the wild with a multicoloured bright bottom. Follow his journey of cheek and colour as he discovers the importance of being yourself and liking who you are.

The Rare Monkey Can’t, Couldn’t, Can!

The Rare Monkey feels sad he can’t do what other animals in the wild can. A new friendship shows him the importance of celebrating what others can do and that in your own way anything is possible.

“Any children’s book should have the principle target of entertaining its young reader first and foremost, but if that book is able to add a moral to its story, then it becomes the perfect children’s book. The Rare Monkey does both.”

“This is a wonderful book and is beautifully written. Very amusing, but it sends out a lovely message about how it’s not important if you’re different to others.”

“I was blown away by this children’s book. Here is a rare thing indeed: a children’s book with a strong moral message whilst also presenting an artistic and creative flair.”
