I live in France, but I still feel a strong link with England, where I grew up and where I first began to love birds and animals.
In "Ebony and Spica" I describe how I rescued two fledglings, first a blackbird and then a starling, and how both of them lived with me for many years.
Children's literature in English is a treasure house, and I hope I'm making a small contribution to it with my books "The Story of an Ordinary Lion" and "Tobias and the Demon", both of which are told from an animal's point of view and which are intended for the 8-12 age group.
I'm also interested in the unexplained - strange phenomena that are a challenge to any kind of dogma - as will be apparent from both "A Paris Haunting" and "Candlepower".
Please take a look at the videos on this page if you would like a foretaste of my books. You'll hear me reading aloud.
