Piles of Books

I am an Aotearoa / New Zealand writer, editor and educator working mainly in the fields of junior fantasy novels and poetry.

My latest children's fantasy Mallory Mallory: Trick or Treat under the Puffin imprint of Penguin Random New Zealand has just been released.

This book, like its predecessor Mallory Mallory: The Revenge of the Tooth Fairy (2020), is peppered with great illustrations by Emily Walker who also illustrated the cover. You can read about these on the Penguin Random NZ website and listings in on-line book stores. It is funny and wild.
