About me – the slightly longer version

I’m Sarah, and I have written and hand drawn stories for as long as I can remember. Having lived in Fairyland for most of my life, I think it’s only right to share my adventures with the rest of the world. I think telling stories is the best way to communicate, although the people close to me probably wish I’d just talk normally from time to time!

 

I write and illustrate children’s books for all ages, including Young Adult fiction. I want my readers to feel the excitement, humour and magic of life when they read my stories, but I also strive to promote confidence, emotional resilience, diversity and equality though my books. I especially like creating strong female characters who challenge stereotypes and encourage young readers to ask questions about the world around them.

 

I am the founder and creator of www.can-do-kids.co.uk where you can find articles, ideas, resources, and links to inspire children to be confident, compassionate and open-minded individuals.

'Through the magic of story-telling, the world we live in can expand until there are no boundaries and nothing is impossible.'
