School Library Journal - Christmas With Auntie
“Though bunnies are the central characters of the story, their human-like behaviors help readers easily connect with them. Carefully selected words and phrases make the text enjoyable as a read-aloud, and young children will especially enjoy reading this tale on the lap of a treasured auntie. This highly giftable book lovingly celebrates the relationship between a favorite aunt and her young niece or nephew.”
Kirkus Reviews - Christmas With Auntie
“Young readers will love sharing this story with their own aunties at Christmastime…A Yuletide tale featuring irresistible bunnies that also spotlights a cherished relationship.”

I find it such fun creating, for example, a thoughtful fox, a happy hippo, a shy sheep, or a caring bear! The other thing I like is creating landscapes, places where my characters can run about and have adventures. Living in a magnificent place like Snowdonia helps a great deal."
