PiBoIdMo Begins

This year I have decided to participate in the PiBoIdMo (Picture Book Idea Month) challenge. It starts tomorrow, and the challenge is to create 30 picture book ideas in 30 days. The ideas need only be very basic ideas, but will hopefully provide a bank of ideas to work from over the next 12 months. I have several author friends who’ve taken part in this challenge before and rave about it. Each day there is a blog from an author or picture book professional to help inspire the creation of ideas, and there is a community of support, energy and encouragement. So here we go, 30 ideas, 30 days…….

Children's Author. Born in the UK in 1977 I grew up and was educated in the small country side town of Ashbourne in the Midlands, my childhood was spent surrounded by animals and children. I was one of three children but my wonderful parents also fostered 11 little children whilst I was young. Riding horses and reading books were my main two loves. Upon leaving high school I studied teaching and biology at university in Birmingham and left with a first class honors degree. My teaching degree re-ignited my passion for beautifully written and illustrated children’s literature. I moved to Australia in 2002 where I forged a career in sales. In 2006 I married my Australian husband in 2006 and we now have two young children. Given my teaching background I had always wanted to write children’s stories that truly engage the reader, and reading to my children has again brought children’s literature to the forefront of my life. Most of my stories are aimed at children between 0-6 yrs, but they will also appeal to the reader through their beautiful rhythm and ability to take your imagination on a wonderful journey.
