My books are works of advocacy, in which I speak up for those who cannot speak up for themselves.
I work as a speech and language therapist, mostly with children who for various reasons cannot speak, or cannot communicate with other people. These children may have language delay, or hearing impairment, or be extremely shy about speaking in front of other people.
In my work, as in my books, I try to give these children a voice - to help them to say what they want to say, to express their ideas and tell other people about their dreams and hopes.
My books are not text books; they are fiction. You will find in each one a gripping story, and engaging characters who live interesting lives. And in the process of reading their stories, you will come to know what it is like to be unable to communicate, and how these children can overcome their difficulties.
