Well, I guess I’m the “old chook” but I prefer to be known as the Mother Hen.  I loved reading as a child and was fascinated by the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson and Enid Blyton so it was inevitable that the written word would become a huge part of my life.

I don’t go looking for stories, they just seem to find me, and once they get a grip I can’t relax until I have given them form. Many stay in the draw or on the computer, others fight to get out and that’s when Debbie brings them to life. I really enjoy storytelling and reading aloud so when I write I focus on the rhythm and bounce of the words. I want them to dance off the page, leap into the air and beg for children to call them out.
