Retellings and Anthologies

You can buy my books from lots of bookshops and online retailers; I favour Hive and Waterstones

I like doing retellings. You can find some of my non-Greek and Celtic myth retellings, and also some of my original short stories in the books below.

I have three retellings in the bestselling Read Me A Story, Please compiled by Wendy Cooling (Orion) 1998, including Oscar Wilde’s The Selfish Giant, and five original stories in The Animals’ Bedtime Storybook (Orion) 2000

I have also retold

Heidi by Joanna Spyri

A Little Princess  by Frances Hodgson Burnett (also in Portuguese) which were both adapted and retold for Dorling Kindersley 2000

Poetry is another thing I love writing. I have poems in various anthologies such as Island of the Children and Casting a Spell (Orchard), and have also been a regular contributor to Scholastic Poetry Collections and John Foster’s many collections for OUP, including Whizz Bang Oran-Utan and Cockadoodle Moo.
