'I love to bring learning to life with stories. I spent many hours, days and months collecting words and crafting them in to stories that kids could relate to with colourful characters and fun adventures, that just happen to help them learn to spell as well :) All the stories were created and written in my flower garden and I hope the stories bring happiness and growth, just as my flower garden does!
