I had two passions as a child and teenager: writing and painting. I studied art in primary school and wrote novels and poems for my own and for my family's entertainment. I won my first award for one of my novels aged 14. I wrote articles and published a comic strip with one of my friends in the school paper.

After qualifying as a lawyer, I lived in Budapest then in London settling with my English husband, Thomas, our three naughty cats and a Newfoundland puppy. 

I started working on Talendia in 2016 and the first book in the series "The Lost Boy" was published in the UK in September 2017. I recently finished its sequel, "The Forgotten Folk". Currently, I am working on the third book of the series. 

The most wonderful thing about writing for children is creating fascinating tales that they enjoy reading as well as characters they are fond of and whom they will consider good friends years later. 

I am particularly interested in library and school visits where I can talk to the children about my fantasy series "Talendia" and its magical creatures.

No fee for school or library visits apart from expenses!

I am looking forward to meeting you!
