"Be Happy to Be You"
My first Children's Picture Book tells the story of Baby Bird who is dissatisfied with his achievements.
"Be Proud to Be Blue"
My second Children's Picture Book tells the story of Baby Bird again, but this time he can't find anyone to play with.
If you have dyslexia or know someone with the disorder or are curious about the disorder, you may be interested in Dyslexic Font.
This font is not a cure for dyslexia, but has been shown to help.
It's really important to me that as many children as possible are able to read, so all my books can be ordered in a dyslexic font.
I am a retired Primary School Teacher living in Todmorden on the Lancashire / Yorkshire border, with 30 years experience in education.

I have two wonderful children, a lovely daughter-in-law and three amazing grandsons.
Married to Mike for 6 years, I now have three fantastic step-children. Quite a family!

"Be Happy to be You!" is a Children's Picture Book about a little bird who is not happy with his life, comparing his achievements to those of other animals.
He wants to swim like a fish, jump like a frog and run like a horse. His mother teaches him that he should be proud of what he can do and be happy to be himself. It is only when Baby bird falls ill that he realises that his mother could be right.
