Since her children were small and Claudia discovered the amazing world of picture books, they became her most loved and treasured reads. Firm favourites being The Paper Dolls, The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Where The Wild Things Are. So her passion for crafting stories for early readers and listeners began.
With her background in Education, Claudia has always been passionate about supporting children with reading and encouraging a lifelong love of books and writing.
Claudia decided, having found a talented illustrator, Daniel Hill, to go down the self-publishing route, rather than traditional publishing. This gave her more freedom over her work and it's promotion.
The story of Mummy’s Birthday Lion was born through a genuine misunderstanding with her then 4-year-old, over the request for a ‘lie-in’ not a ‘lion’!
Claudia is busy working on her next picture, due to be out in 2020.
Daniel based in Brighton, UK. Daniel loves working on projects with authors and bringing their ideas to life with his quirky style of drawing.
As well as illustrating picture books, he creates original artwork and products. He puts up daily doodles over on his Instagram @doodlesfrommybrain and merchandise on his Etsy store.
