I've had many careers in my life; I've been a baker, a teacher, a scientist, a musician, a cleaner, an actor and...well, lots of things! But the one thing that I enjoy above everything is - being an author! But that doesn't really convey the deep down pleasure it gives me to create characters, situations, towns, cities, even whole worlds! If you've ever wondered what it would be like to play at being God and shape human lives just the way you want to, well, the advice I would give you is - become an author!
Plunge into your thoughts, feelings, memories and imagination and create something nobody else has ever created before - and then do it as well as you can! It's true that I write for my own satisfaction, but if I'm hoping that someone is going to read my work - and ideally pay good money for it! - then I've got to make it as good as I can!
So welcome to my world! I write books for children (including those of any age who are still children at heart!) and I usually like to include something magical in my stories. Magic has a very special appeal for me, not least because it seems like magic to me when a story appears in my head! That's when I most feel like a magician!
I write as well as I can with you in mind. I hope you enjoy my world as much as I do!

Only one person knows how to face up to these threats - and that's Jackie Potatoes, of course!
