My debut collection and the result of a decade of work. BookTrust describes it as "stunningly original”, it's one of the Independent's top ten poetry books for children, and it won the 2021 NSTBA Award for poetry. It also comes with a free audiobook, which I hope you will love as much as I do.

Celebrate!

I've LOVED working with the British Museum to travel the world through festivals. Celebrate! explores major world religions, beliefs and customs from around the globe, and how festivals all share something major in common – they bring us together.

We Need to Talk About Love

(originally titled Love Factually)

I've interviewed hundreds of strangers aged 8 to 95 across every continent, asking them to share their most personal stories, feelings and insights about relationships. We Need to Talk About Love combines these conversations with psychology, philosophy and anthropology, and is the perfect read for anyone who is curious about how we think, feel and behave when it comes to love. "Fantastic" (Daily Mail), "Much better and more useful than my film" (Richard Curtis).

Please Find Attached

I've spent four years following seven brave people as they talk candidly about their upbringings, their loves and their losses and undergo formal assessments into their relationship patterns. As we delve deep into their lives, I explain Attachment Theory, the most well–researched relationship science, and how it can make sense of our lives.
