Sometimes I Feel Sad

This book should be in every classroom and be part of every teacher’s go to lessons/schemes of work when covering mental health issues, depression, or any kind of sadness in a child’s life.
— Lee Peckover, qualified teacher and epilepsy advocate

Sometimes I Feel Sad is a short picture book to help children understand feelings of sadness -- how to accept them and how to speak honestly with others.

My Secret Dog

This is a great book! Not only is it an entertaining story, but it’s also a very subtle way to help children understand how things can escalate when you keep a secret... Definitely a book for both parents and children to enjoy.
— Juno Magazine

My Secret Dog is a funny and sweet picture book about a little girl who will go to extraordinary lengths to keep the pet she wants so much.

Other projects

Second Class Irregulars

This mailing list forms a large part of my ongoing artistic practice.

I write, design, print and distribute experimental publications full of humour and weirdness. The forms can range from comics, magazines and short stories to other more esoteric forms, such as sticker albums, packs of gum, and even the odd ransom note.

You can sign up for free and receive them for yourself. 

Some Murders

A collection of crime stories, concentrating less on whodunnit than why. These were mostly written in 2012-13, but occasionally get added to. They're collected in a blog format, so you can subscribe for updates, should they ever happen.
