I’m looking forward to presenting the work of The Girl with the Curly Hair to people in west and central Scotland (and maybe beyond!).
By profession I’m a speech and language therapist and I’ve supported many children, young people and adults with autism throughout my career. When I first came across Alis’s books I found a fresh and very relatable way to talk through the difficulties that many of the young people and adults I was working with were facing. I was forever lending the books out and frequently got comments like ‘that’s how it feels for me!’
I lived in Scotland when I was young and moved back up here 2 years ago from Cheshire. I now live on the west coast, just half an hour away from Glasgow but with a lovely view of the sea from my kitchen window.
I have 3 grown up children and a 5 year old granddaughter.
