Writing for children

Jen  published four board books with Lake Press in 2015 and 2016 both internationally and in Australia. They are being sold in the USA, China, Taiwan, Spain, Poland, Italy, Greece and Scandinavia.


This series encourages children to develop social skills in a gentle, fun way. It helps children to deal with their own feelings and behaviours, and consider those around them

With a gender neutral main character, these books are designed to appeal to both boys and girls. Illustrated by the wonderful Katie Saunders, these books are immediately appealing.

I've Been Brave

In this story the child tackles those big ticket items that scare small kids, like the under bed zone, green vegies and the bath plug monster.

I've Been Kind

In this story the child discovers that being kind to others (to Lola the dog, teddy and Mummy) can lead to personal happiness as well as bringing happiness to those they've been kind to.

I've Been Good

This is not a story about compliance. In this book the child learns that being good is about trying hard, sharing, helping and forgiving.

I've Been Tidy

Tidying is one of those life skills that is the beginning of learning about responsilbity.  In this story we see that tidying up is about learning to be a helpful member of a family.
