Welcome, and hello.

I am an avid reader, a mom, and now that I have been blessed with grandchildren, I am a nana too! Reading to my children when they were growing was one of my greatest joys, every night transporting us together to another world, another reality. We laughed together, railed in anger, gasped in shock, and cried with grief (well, I did most of the crying), my children seem to be the more stalwart members of our family.

My first children’s book written with love for my unborn grandchild, has sparked a new desire to create more children’s literacy, with a purpose – sharing my passion for the underwater world. As a scuba diver and underwater photographer, I am making it my mission to write children’s books to help them understand the beauty of the underwater world, and teach them how important it is for us to take care of it!

It is my wish that they fall in love with ocean and all of its inhabitants as much as I have, and of course, reading too! Please visit our activity page to find colouring pages and fun facts about some of the characters you may meet in our story!

Now get comfy – let’s read!
