Writing for change

I was privileged to work for Save the Children for 13 years, in countries across Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe. I travelled to places tourists never see, to work alongside remarkable local people. The influence of these life-changing experiences inspired my latest novel, Uncertain Light.


In the years I was Save the Children’s senior advisor on its education work, I co-wrote and edited a series of short books for practitioners. In them we brought together examples from over 30 countries.  They have been translated into a number of languages and are used around the world. Click on the links to find out more about them:
