Lizzie, who has run a successful group of preschools in Croydon, England for over 20 years, wrote her first children’s picture book four years ago.
This busy mum lives in Croydon with her husband John and their two children. Her family provide the inspiration for her stories and it was her son who gave me the title of her first story ‘My Sister’s Turning into a Monster’.
“I love reading to children as well and helping them to create their own stories,” she said.
“My books are targeted for young children around the ages of 2 –6 and I have used family and friends to illustrate.
“Waterstones bookshop have been a fantastic support which has helped me get started and I am on my own learning journey with social media to promote and sell my stories!”
The books are written in rhyme and have a selection of characters that tell their own story. One of Lizzie’s favourites is Murtle the Turtle:
Murtle the Turtle had a very bad habit
She’d pick her big nose and flick it at Rabbit!
Rabbit responded by filling the shell
That Murtle live in with a very bad smell!!
