"As a Speech and language therapist, Linzi's knowledge of language development makes her a perfect writer for childrens books. I can't wait to see what she writes next!"
My love of books started from early childhood, and I still have and cherish some of my earliest books. My passion for children's picture books grew as I started working as a Speech and Language Therapist (Pathologist). Now having worked as a Speech and Language Therapist for over 10 years in England, Australia and Scotland, I have seen the benefits that books bring to children's development. I love seeing how books inspire children's imagination, play and language.
I entered the world of children's picture books after attending a writing course at Edinburgh University in 2019. It was from this course that the idea for my first book 'The hairbrush-dodging ninja' came.
My ambition is to write books that help develop children's speech, language and communication skills. With some fun and laughter along the way!
I now live in Edinburgh, and in my spare time love to travel, get outdoors to hike and paddle board, and spend time with friends drinking coffee and eating good food!

When Mum says it's time to brush her hair, she has to do some ninja-fast thinking!
What obstacles will she have to dodge to get out of it?
