Welcome aboard!

I’m a children’s author, writing fantastical tales with a large helping of humour. 

I grew up in Newport, South Wales where, thanks to my local library, I developed a lifelong obsession with myth and magic. Now I live in the Welsh mountains with my husband and two cats, (who are disappointingly unmagical – as far as I know…)

When I’m not writing, I love traveling around, sharing my love of stories, and inspiring new readers and writers. I give talks to adults and children. Check out my events page for details. I’m now taking bookings for 2024 and beyond. Contact me if you’d like a visit, and sign up to my newsletter to keep up with what’s happening.


As part of my folklore talk for adults, I’ve compiled a reading list of books I’ve found helpful. Click on the image to get a bigger version.

Rwy’n awdur plant, sy’n ysgrifennu straeon ffantasi sy’n llawn hiwmor. 

Cefais fy magu yng Nghasnewydd, De Cymru. Diolch i’m llyfrgell leol, teithiais ledled y byd, yn ôl i’r gorffennol ac ymlaen i’r dyfodol. Datblygais obsesiwn gydol oes gyda chwedlau a hud, ond rwy’n dal i feddwl mai Cymru yw’r lle gorau i fyw.

Nawr rwy’n byw yng nghanol mynyddoedd Cymru gyda fy ngŵr a’m dwy gath, sy’n siomedig o anhudolus, ond rwy’n eu caru beth bynnag.

Pan nad ydw i’n ysgrifennu, rwyf wrth fy modd yn ymweld ag ysgolion, llyfrgelloedd a gwyliau, gan rannu fy nghariad at straeon ac ysbrydoli darllenwyr ac awduron newydd.
