Home to the books I have published, news, offers, stories, online activities, writing tips, bookish gifts and more...


Nine years ago, I started a contemporary book blog called Books and Authors UK because I loved books and wanted to do something bookish soon after having my second child.

Starting my blog placed me in the centre of the online book blogging community. There I began connecting with bloggers, authors, illustrators and designers, some of whom I later met in person at sparkly and exciting book events.

While running the blog, I had a dream of one day becoming a published author. I pantsed a lot of fiction and attended many writing classes at The City Lit in London.


Fast forward to November 2017, I released my first short story, The Big Event, in ebook and audiobook format under my Books and Authors Publishing UK imprint. Under this imprint, I self-published six books in three different formats. Bella's Christmas Wonderland Adventure, Bella's Big Caribbean Adventure, and a spin-off full-colour activity and colouring book were my first ever children's books.


I am delighted and excited to develop my Books and Authors brand to include other services such as new product lines for an online gift shop I launched in December 2021 at www.booksandauthorsgiftshop.com and a micro publishing house, Books and Authors Publishing UK.

Having studied graphic design at the London College of Communication/Central Saint Martins (UCA), I have finally found a place to turn my passion into bookish-themed gifts.

As an author, graphic designer, and independent micro publisher, I hope you'll find delight in my books, prints, mugs, mouse mats, cushions and more coming in 2023!
