I am a journalist by profession and have always been interested in writing children's fiction. Taking inspiration from authors who began writing after their children have left school, I have recently decided to take the plunge and begin a career as a full time author.
It used to be the dream of many people to run away to join a circus. For the Davis family though, the circus IS their home. Aimed at children aged 5 to 11, The Big Toppers is the first in a series of 12 stories, each set in one month of a momentous year for this family circus.
