I'm a qualified teacher and librarian who has had seven children's books published in traditional form in the UK and USA. I've also had over 40 stories published in British and Australian women's magazines.
In 2012 I set up a child-friendly website, www.megamousebooks.com, to offer free children's stories, ebooks and printable puzzles. It's proving a full-time job, but a very enjoyable one!
