I feel lucky to have a life 100% dedicated
to books - I write, edit, publish and work directly with young children and their families.
I'm best known as the author of the Lulu/Lola books, though I've written over 25 picture books.
I'm also Editor at large at AlannaMax.
In the UK, the Lulu and Zeki books are books are published by AlannaMax.
In the US, Lola and Leo books are published by Charlesbridge Publishing.
The Lulu & Zeki books are also published in Denmark by Forlaget Arvids, in Netherlands by Luister, in Brazil by Pallas in Sweden by EPIX and in Korea by Glburri.
My books are also published by Chicken-House/Scholastic, Barefoot Books, Little Tiger, Annick Press and O'Brien Press.
As well as writing, I am Editor at Large at AlannaMax (I founded Alanna Books in 2006 and the new, more exciting list has Ken Wilson-Max as Publisher).
Alanna Max publishes Lulu (illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw), her little brother Zeki (illustrated by Ruth Hearson), Suzanne Bloom, Jakob Martin Strid, Margaret Bateson-Hill (illustrated by Francesca Pelizzoli and Anne Wilson) and a few more
beautiful, select titles.
