My first book No Matter What was published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers in 2013. The Unofficial Guide to Adoptive Parenting followed in 2014. Billy Bramble and the Great Big Cook Off, an illustrated novel for children struggling with aggressive behaviours was published in 2016.
My latest book, The Unofficial Guide to Therapeutic Parenting, The Teen Years will be published in 2019. I’m currently working on a novel about stand-up comedy which is meant to be nothing to do with early childhood trauma.
I contribute articles on adoption reform and therapeutic parenting to the online Social Work magazine Community Care. Some of them were quite good and won awards from the British Society of Magazine Editors and the Professional Publishers Association.
In 2017 I was awarded an OBE.
I occasionally speak in public about therapeutic parenting (the unofficial kind), self care, advocacy in education and post adoption support.
