From the author
Thanks for coming to my website!
If you enjoy stories about magic, monsters, mystery and madness then this is the website for you! If not, then hey, why not check it out anyway? You may find it fun. There’s plenty to see and enjoy including work sent in by readers and reading tips/activities for you to try out.
This page features details of my novel, Please Sir, The Gremlin Ate My Homework! It’s written for those of you aged nine to twelve with awesome cover designs by Zoe Saunders. If you’re younger (three- to six-year-olds) click on the tab for Grandma Georgia’s Amazing Handbag and explore my fun picture book fabulously illustrated by Roberta Magro!
For those aged six to eight, keep an eye out for upcoming books for you! I’ll be adding information to the site about new books asap! (Word Quest here. If you don’t already know what asap means, be a word detective and investigate.)
Anyway, have fun finding out all about Please Sir, The Gremlin Ate My Homework! and Grandma Georgia’s Amazing Handbag. Don’t forget to watch the site’s book trailers specially created for you by SLATE 32 PRODUCTIONS.
P.S: If you read my book, I’d love to hear from you and feature your comments on this site, but please remember that, unlike the Gremlin in the story, it’s important that we’re respectful to and of each other. Also, because your safety is important to me, I can only accept emails sent with an adult’s permission and from their email address.
