Here is a picture of me when I was about ten.
This is how glasses used to look. Mine were pink with sparkles.
Ever since I can remember I have liked to write stories and poems. I wrote all the way through school and college and for many years after, but no one wanted to publish what I wrote.
Then I became a mother. I read lots of picture books to my children, and I enjoyed these books as much as they did. My son liked tools, so I looked for a book on tools for him, but couldn't find one. (This was before Bob the Builder.) So I wrote a tool book myself and sent it to Golden Books, and that's how Max Helps Out happened. I wrote another Golden Book titled I'll Share With You because it's hard for young children to learn how to share. I decided to give up trying to write stories for adults and write children's stories instead. It's a lot more fun!
