Go ahead and click around this sleek website and admire that stylish picture of me up there. They represent my professional public face.
The real me is: disorganised, usually brewing tea, and always obsessed with choosing the exact right word. I live on a boat called Nostromo on the Grand Union Canal.
I also have a new book coming out, illustrated by the incredibly talented Nuria Tamarit!
