An Indiana Jones-style time-slip adventure for ages 10+ (warning: at least one very scary scene unsuitable for young or sensitive readers).
We like 88 Lime Street for the friendship and teamwork between a balanced group of three girls and three boys, and the fascinating puzzles and mysteries.

I Own All the Blue will be available as a paperback book from the 13th of June 2018.

This picture book for ages four to seven tells the story of a bowerbird who refuses to share the colour blue. Bowerbird’s greed and sense of entitlement has a domino effect as the other animals race to claim colours for themselves. Mixing the colours could lead to disaster as one animal stands to inherit it all… unless everyone learns to share.
