Hello 👋 I'm a children's book writer and zoologist based in lovely London.
I write books for children (and occasionally adults) about animals. You can find out about them in the Books section, or whizz on over to my Amazon author page or (preferably) take a trip to my Bookshop page - and support local bookshops by buying some books there!
I completed my PhD at Cambridge University before working as a scientist, professional science communicator, as well as a journalist and researcher for the BBC. Today, I work behind the scenes at the wonderful Natural History Museum, London.
In terms of sciencey stuff, I've worked at University College London (where I occasionally lecture) and the Zoological Society of London. I sit on the council of the Systematics Association, have studied extinct mammals, sensory systems, and have thought about small mammals that live in forests a lot. You can read more about that side of things on the Research section.
I'm represented by Veronique Baxter of David Higham. You can get in touch with me directly on the contacts page. 😁
