myHK: Do you want to know what I’m doing?!

I am so excited to announce that my new picture book series is printed, published and ready for you to read!!




I wrote this book series three years ago and soon after found an incredible Illustrator named Rosie Blair in London.  I knew she was the perfect fit for these books as soon as I saw her work.

It has been quite a process getting the illustrations just the way we wanted them, but we couldn’t be more excited about how they’ve turned out!

This series is about two best friends, Phenella and Riley Rabbit.  They have hilarious adventures, which you would expect from friends with such bold personalities and unique qualities.


Phenella Learns to Hop

What happens when a rabbit teaches an enormous elephant how to hop?






Phenella Plays Hide and Seek

Phenella and Riley Rabbit play a thrilling game of hide and seek!  You’ll never guess who ends up on top!







Phenella Goes to the Mountains

Phenella and her good friend Riley Rabbit take a trip to the mountains.  However Phenella takes some very peculiar items and Riley Rabbit just can’t understand why!









These three picture books are $10USD/$78HKD each or all three for $28USD/$218HKD.  Of course I’m biased, but I think you’ll love reading these books for your children!  

On top of the great price, all net proceeds go to Love 21 Foundation, supporting health and nutrition programs for the Down syndrome and autistic community in Hong Kong.

It’s a total win!

We have also published a Phenella coloring book, which has some of the original character sketches showing how the characters came to life, and organic T-shirts with Phenella and Riley Rabbit.

You can get all of this and more at

Thanks for you support!
