Hello! I’m Kim. I write stories and draw pictures and…make picture books!

I have two books OUT NOW! both published by Ladybird Books at Penguin Random House.

Mabel and The Mountain is a story about a very small fly named Mabel who dreams of climbing a mountain, despite what her friends might think! It’s a story about self-belief and you can find out more HERE.

Ned and the Great Garden Hamster Race stars Ned the hamster! He’s been training for the Great Garden Hamster Race for AGES but when the race finally starts, he soon realises a few small random acts of kindness might be more important than winning at any cost. You can find out more about Ned HERE.

I’ve been writing stories and drawing pictures since I was small. I studied Drama at Exeter University and then worked as music journalist for nearly ten years, writing for places like the NME and the BBC.

I now make picture books and run workshops in schools and libraries and galleries and, well, anywhere really! I love meeting young people and finding ways to be more creative 🙂
