I’ve had a little hand in writing the books below, under my many different pen-names!
MAISIE MAE: NO BOYS ALLOWED!
Maisie Mae and her best friend Bethany-next-door like pink, unicorns and heart-shaped cushions. Maisie Mae’s five stinky brothers like worms, football and CHAOS! Join eight-year-old Maisie as she holds her own in a boisterous family where practical jokes are the order of the day. She might like girly things, but that doesn’t mean she’s above a prank or three – especially when it comes to twins Harry and Ollie who she has to share a room with. When Maisie’s dad inherits some money from a great-uncle everyone had forgotten about, he has brilliant news. They’re going to convert the attic into a new bedroom. Maisie and her brothers immediately start arguing over who will get it. Mum and Dad silence them – whoever behaves best in the next few weeks will get the room …With a bedroom of their own up for grabs, Maisie Mae and her brothers launch into full-on warfare to make each other look as bad as they can. Will Maisie get a NO BOY ZONE of her very own? Or will everything end in disaster?

Maisie’s family are heading to France for the best camping trip ever! There’ll be croissants and baguettes and …snails? But when they arrive, France feels an awful lot like England. And camping seems like an awful lot of bother. Especially when you’ve got FIVE stinky brothers who are talented in the art of being really extremely ANNOYING and your best-friend-who-is-almost-as-good-as-a-sister is in a whole other country. But then Maisie meets Mademoiselle Claudette and things start looking up. Perhaps camping might be OOH LA LA after all?
Jimmy Roberts’ favourite sport to watch is Robot Races, where drivers and their high-tech robot vehicles compete. When the races’ founder announces a special version of the competition just for children, Jimmy and his robot, Cabbie, were thrilled to qualify. After finishing second in the first race, they’re out to win the next challenge, in the Amazon rainforest – but Jimmy’s enemy Horace has other ideas.
Jimmy and Cabbie have finally warmed up after their Arctic adventure, and are amazed to be sitting on top of the Robot Races leaderboard. Jimmy’s been having a great time getting to know the other racers, and he and Cabbie make a terrific team. But now they’re facing their toughest challenge yet: crossing the Sahara with no navigation system. Can they make it to the finish before the others?
