Kathy is currently a full-time Mum having worked as an accountant for 10 years. Her first book for children, Nana Duck, was a finalist in the Wishing Shelf awards 2017.  It is a wonderfully sweet story about a little girl who spends the weekend with her grandparents and is confused by people calling her Nana "duck."  Set in North Staffordshire, where Kathy grew up and is currently based, the book celebrates the important role that grandparents play and the funny things that children say.

Kathy is excited to have started her Beanstalk Stoke volunteering journey in 2018.

I have always been surrounded by books and love to read.  I hope to be able to encourage the children that I read with so that they too can develop a love of reading that will be a source of pleasure to them for many years to come.
