A friend invited me to look at his journal back in 2007 and I decided to join in – I was hooked quickly. I don't promise to post every day, but I'm up for the challenge. Most of my photos are of some kind of creature (pets and the critters in the garden or wherever I can find them) or of London, where I live and have adventures.

I'm a volunteer for the West Norwood FEAST, a community voice in SE27. The market part of FEAST takes place on the first Sunday of every month, from April to December. I help run Retro Village, so do expect to see some vintage trinkets from time to time. I'm no expert, so I'm learning on the hop! I'm a bit of a magpie, though, so these vintage goods are slowly quickly working their way into my flat and wardrobe.

Work doesn't really feel like work. I write and edit non-fiction children's books and I learn something new every day. You may find one of my Shine-a-Light books (you need a torch to read them) in your local bookshop. Or, if you're in the US, you won't find them in a store or on Amazon – one of an amazing team of Usborne Books and More consultants will sell one to you at a stall or online.
