Mrs. Mo's Monster 2014

Mrs Mo's Monster was my first book to be published. Originally written in 2005 the story and illustrations were roundly rejected by publishers and agents, quiet rightly so as it was pretty bad. It wasn't until 2012 that I dug the story out again and decided to rework the whole thing. A year later after more rejections it was finally accepted by Gecko Press and published in 2014. Typography and cover design in collaboration with Luke and Vida Kelly. More information can be found at mrsmosmonster.com

"This explosively illustrated fable is a real find."
Nicholas Tucker - The Independent on Sunday

"...a story with emotional and psychological depth but with all the lightness of touch and humour one could hope for."
Zoe Toft - Playing by the Book.net

"This clever, dry, talented author/illustrator has created a story both adults and kids will find enormously funny and rewarding--not only for its fabulousness, but for the fact that it doesn't follow any kind of monster stereotype. Yay"
Tania McCartney - kids-bookreview.com
