Humour has always been top of Fred’s list when it comes to drawing and writing.

Right from those early (rather unflattering) portraits of teachers, Fred knew he wanted to entertain with his work. Now writing and illustrating his own, very silly picture books and children’s fiction – Fred couldn’t be happier.

Fred has illustrated dozens of books. His own Captain Falsebeard series was published in 2015 (Puffin), in addition to author collaborations with; Will Mabbitt This is Not A Bedtime Story series (Puffin), Michelle Robinson The Forgetful Knight (Dial USA) / Grandmas from Mars (Bloomsbury), Julia Jarman Fussy Freda (Hodder), the Knightmare fiction series, Peter Bently (Stripes).

Fred’s latest author/illustrated title Santa Clause Vs The Easter Bunny published with Andersen Press. Clients include: Penguin Random House, Andersen Press, Bloomsbury, Hodder, Dial USA, Little Tiger Press, Usborne, Collins, Kingfisher, Blue Apple USA…and many others.

Fred lives in Wiltshire, with his wife Clare, two children Bonnie and Sonny, and their retired Greyhound, Olive.
