Hi, I live in London, UK, and I have self-published 14 books. I work as a magazine layout sub-editor. I love reading, writing, films, the sea, art, animals (especially cats), nature, rock music, Milky Bar and travelling.
Kiwi and the Serpent of the Isle was a finalist in the Children's Books section of the National Indie Excellence Book Awards 2013.
As I edit indie books for a living, so you might see other books alongside mine in the UK bookshop when you do a search. The only ones I've written bear the author's name of Vickie Johnstone. I edited the others.
In 2011, I self-published the following books:
Kaleidoscope (March) - a gathering of 119 poems, divided by chapter themes;
Travelling Light - a small, free book of poetry;
Kiwi in Cat City - the first in a series about a magical cat and her human pals (April);
Kiwi and the Missing Magic (June);
Kiwi and the Living Nightmare (October).
The Kiwi books contain illustrations by Nikki McBroom.
Books published in 2012:
Day of the Living Pizza - a free comedy horror for ages 10 up (May);
Life's Rhythms - a collection of 316 haiku (June);

The Kiwi Series is written for readers aged 9 up. They follow the adventures of a magical cat called Kiwi and her two human friends, Amy and James. With a flick of her tail, Kiwi magically changes the two children into kittens and takes them to her other home, Cat City, and to other new worlds.
