HI! I'm a bit crazy about crabs, sharks and other weird creatures and I like drawing and talking about them. I'm also a web designer and I enjoy skiing and ales.


Background Information

Some years ago, I worked on illustrating a book for an American author. We were offered a publishing contract but - for various reasons - we were forced to decline it. Some months later I felt I'd like to do my own books but I was keen on making them factual and focusing on the natural world; I felt there were too many 'fantastical' titles available for young kids keen to learn about the real world around them.

Influence-wise, I am very fond of Neal Layton's work because it is highly irreverent as well as frequently informative. His illustations are impressively well observed imitations of the drawings of children with just enough grown-up consistency and clarity to be explicable.

Birth Place
Norwich,  England
Additional Information

I have completed my first book, called 'Crabs Are Odd', which is available from lulu.com. If anyone has any facts or info about sharks they would like to share, I'll consider it for my next book!

Favorite Links

The website for my freelance web design business. The 'CAPTCHA' on the contact page is crab-themed, predictably...

Crab News Feed
This is the link to the RSS feed that includes any new crab articles and facts that I find. Updated pretty regularly!
