I am the author of the first two books in the trilogy, Paper Boats & Butterflies. With my teaching experience, I have created a scheme of work for book 1, Unfolding the Truth. This is comprised of 18 lessons, allowing for three lessons per week across a six-week term. Each lesson has a power point and resources. There are additional free resources too. My aim is to provide children with a great read in which they can relate to the characters and an adaptable resource for busy teachers.

It is set in 2015 with dystopian touches and explores Nature versus Nurture.  ​ At the beginning of the novel, we meet two girls, Z89, who is bombarded by rats and giant spiders, and then in complete contrast ERIN, who is seen arguing with her parents. Erin often gets into trouble at school and feels her parents favour her brother, MALACHI. ​ Erin lives in a small town called Newton. Her family are comfortably off and seem to be happy and ‘normal’.
