About Felix & Pip

〈〈 〉〉 Stuff Stuff Stuff Stuff Stuff Stuff Stuff Stuff Stuff Stuff

Felix and Pip love being on the water. Exploring new places and making new friends is all part of their fun-filled adventures.

Beginning in 2014, the series of ‘The Adventures of Felix and Pip’ began when a storm happened at the Werribee South River. This was a storm like no other, and one where Felix found himself adrift in a boat called Purr-fect. With the help of his friend Pip and other animal friends, they did everything they could to save Felix and Purr-fect. Amazingly, and despite each animal having limitations as to what they could do – working together – they achieved the impossible.

About The Author

Striving for success in writing books; or anything for that matter, requires a dedicated support team. As Author and illustrator, I lean heavily on the support of my husband Co.

We have been together for many years, with both of us taking interest in each other’s hobbies, which is great as it’s a team effort when we sell our books at the markets.

Being author and illustrator does not, in itself, give birth to a storybook. It begins with a partner that’s willing to allow the freedom and ‘time’ to be lost in the story, resulting in many dinners being late, or not being done at all. 24hr Takeaways are a good friend too. A great partner bears the brunt of many moods, doubts and other emotional paraphernalia that gets dished out to them from their ‘creative’ partners. So when I say ‘we are a team’ it’s tattooed on.

The other people that help out with the birth, is my wonderful publisher ‘Aly’s Books and her amazing team,’ they give the WOW factor to my stories and presentation of the storybook.

And, last but not least is YOU, yes YOU. If you didn’t buy, support, give advice and come back and get another storybook, I would never have got past first base. So to YOU, I say THANK YOU, because it’s YOU who gave me the confidence to be an author and an illustrator, allowing my wild imagination to be free.

At the time of writing, the Cuddles Team have moved to the Gippsland Lakes, where more exciting adventures, and new animal friends will be made. There’s no stopping these two friends, who just love exploring, making new friends - and learning new things all the time.
