HELLO AND WELCOME!
I’m Kirstie and I am a children's author, storyteller, and creator of Telltale Tots, based in Milton Keynes, UK.
I am the author of two acclaimed children’s picture books: The Witch’s Cat and the Cooking Catastrophe, and Pirate Mouse.
I love to visit schools, where I can combine my passion for writing, with a knack for inspiring children to get reading and writing. Find out more about my visits here.
Come in, take a look around, and if you can't find what you're looking for, don't hesitate to get in touch.
