A rhyming graphic novella for 6-9 year olds, ‘My Mummy Comes From The Sea’ brings together ancient Celtic mythology with a very modern problem - how do we cope when our family doesn’t seem to look like anyone else’s?
Jenny has lived by the sea with her Daddy all her life. Her Mummy is different from their other Mums on the playground - she is a selkie, a shape shifting seal spirit, who can only see her daughter on full moons.
What will happen when Jenny’s schoolmates find out about her unusual family? Starring adorable seals, terrifying sea monsters, and a diverse cast of characters, ‘My Mummy Comes From The Sea’ uses the fantastical to answer the very real questions young children ask about all kinds of families.

Oda and Bod
An in-progress graphic novel for readers 10 and up.
When 12 year old computer whizz Oda receives a robotics project to keep her busy over the long Summer holidays, she is less than thrilled. Bod is her famous inventor grandmother’s final legacy - a robot that can learn just like a child. Oda is doubtful. Bod can’t swim, can’t read, and is rubbish at taking the hint when Oda wants to be left alone. Which is often. The Summer holidays have never felt so dreadfully long.
But it there are lots of things Bod is good at. Maybe too good. And it’s starting to attract the wrong type of attention. Taxi tycoons, biscuit making billionaires and some very excitable army generals all want a piece of Bod. Can Oda keep Bod safe?
