I prefer to create characters that reflect the richness of diversity & individuality in our world.
Environment is central to each character’s world.
I have a desire when possible to increase children’s exposure to the natural world and its animals as friends, encouraging respect for biodiversity.
Lyrical voice focused on internal journeys of character towards hope & growth.
I also love a bit of magical realism – often bringing two realistic worlds together – intersecting & bridging differences.
