about Dawn

After a career that has covered both PR and Garden Design, I am now a full time writer.

As well as penning articles for publications such as the Guardian and Telegraph, I have also written four books to date: Garden Crafts for Children (2012), 101 Things For Kids to Do Outside (2014), 101 Things For Kids To Do On A Rainy Day (2015) and 101 Brilliant Things for Kids to do with Science (2017). My next book in the 101 series - 101 Things for Kids to do Screen Free - will be published in Spring 2020. To date my books have been translated into nine languages and sold over 200,000 copies worldwide.

In addition, I write a regular monthly gardening column for the Cambridge Independent which has been nominated for Column of the Year two years running by the Garden Media Guild.

I am also embarking on a new writing journey in the world of YA fiction with a series of novels following my teenage heroine Verity Brown in her adventures in the American Wild West.
