Check out my latest book - Thea and the Think-it-arium, illustrated by the ridiculously talented Giulia Rivolta!

Thea has always wanted a goldfish, so she is very excited when her brother tells her about think-it-ariums. Wearing a headset, a person can imagine what they want to see in the fish tank, and it appears! But when Thea’s imagined creatures get hungry for peanuts, the think-it-arium doesn’t seem so fun any more. Can Thea un-think the creatures before it’s too late?

I'm really pleased to see this new title - Megafauna Mega-fright! - in print. It was a tricky one to research and write, but I really love how it's turned out, no small thanks to the incredible illustrations of Alina Tysoe.

Tim and his friend Raff are spending their holidays helping Tim’s mum on a fossil dig. Raff thinks it’s really boring, until Tim finds a strange device at the edge of the dig site. It looks like a rock, but it has numbers on it.
All of a sudden, Tim and Raff find themselves in an unfamiliar land full of creatures that look a lot like dinosaurs! Will the boys be able to escape the megafauna and find their way back?
