On leaving university I worked in the chemical industry for many years, a rewarding occupation, although writing was always my main love. At the time I had to support a mortgage, a wife and two small children so the idea of becoming a full time author remained a dream until recently when I took the opportunity to jump ship and start writing for real. I went back to the stories I told to my children when they were little. I found they loved stories about dragons, wizards, fairies, goblins, giants, talking animals so together we made up a world of fantasy. I showed them how to use the magic words what if? Here’s how it works: One day I was inspecting a turkey farm and was amazed at the hundreds of Christmas turkeys gobbling around the floor of a huge barn.

So it was that Wiffen the most intelligent turkey in the world was created and what a preposterous creature he turned out to be. (The Adventures of Titch and Mitch) What if the huge hedge that ran alongside a holiday home we once rented in Wales was really hiding a mysterious and forbidden land inhabited by strange creatures? This led to an exciting adventure book called Escape from Mercy Hall, which turned into a trilogy. What if there really was treasure at the end of a rainbow? (The Adventures of Titch and Mitch – The Trolls of Sugar Loaf Wood.) What if the field mouse we spotted at the end of the garden was really a tiny dragon that could breathe fire? (The Adventures of Titch and Mitch – Shipwrecked.) And so it goes on.....
