Cake-queen's picture




I'm a children's writer, storyteller and book reviewer. I have a dark imagination which is well hidden under a liking for pink clothes. Dreaming of finding the perfect agent, not the James Bond type, more a literary genius with flare and a shared love of tea and cakes. Outside my day job and writing, I am currently re-studying French, work very hard but still sound like an extra from 'Allo 'Allo.
