My latest book published by TSL Publications is 'Ezzy the Virus' which is an informative and entertaining book about the 'life' cycle of a virus. This book is for parents to read with children to help children to understand the current coronavirus pandemic situation, and why our behaviour has to be so radically changed at the moment.

      Musician and Author, Ezra Williams, allowed me to use his 'childhood face' to create Ezzy. Click this link to hear Ezra talking about Ezzy the Virus and his own books...
