Hello, earthlings! I'm an award-winning children’s author and scientist based in London, UK.
 
I work in clinical research (developing new medicines) and I'm also studying for my PhD. I very much enjoy my science career but I also have a real passion for writing stories! I have been writing fiction for nearly ten years. I am developing a series of children's books that are both enjoyable and educational.
 
My young nephew Hayden influenced my decision to become an author. I loved seeing his reaction when my sister Michelle first read one of my stories to him!
 
In my spare time, I love going to new places and I try to have as many holidays as possible. My partner Adrian and I absolutely love Scotland, especially the Isle of Skye.
 
My first picture book, Praxx and the Ringing Robot, won second prize in the ‘Picture Books 5 & Younger’ category at the Purple Dragonfly Book Awards 2017.
 
And that brings us to now... I'm currently working on several new books. I am developing my first short story, Engella, into a middle-grade novel. I have five books planned for a brand new series – The Chronicles of Engella Rhys.
 
I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I enjoyed writing them!
Engella
