I gained my teaching qualification at Cambridge University. After that I taught English in Sweden and Bahrain before completing my MA in English for Speakers of Other Languages at the London Institute of Education. I then co-authored a number of books for Macmillan publishing including a major course for children, Bravo. For many years I was a Senior Lecturer for Teacher Training in a London College, whilst also visiting many countries for training and research. I am currently a freelance author, teacher and trainer. I have a special interest in literacy development in Primary age learners and have written three children's picture books.
I am the author of Bravo!, a children's course and co-author of Smart, a course for teenagers.
