After taking redundancy from a call-centre, I pursued my dream job as an author and illustrator. Five years later, I’ve sold over one million picture books, won awards, and toured the world. I live in Swindon UK, am Patron of Swindon Libraries Children's Services and designed their new children's library card. I play an active role with the National Literacy Trust and Beanstalk. My Mr Panda series has been optioned for TV. I also illustrated Tim Minchin's When I Grow Up and a cover of The Famous Five.
