The Origins of PICA BOOKS - being passionate about books & inspiring others

I've been a fan of books since I could read - I often say that I grew up in Narnia and went to school at Malory Towers and St Clare's - and I've been writing stories since I could put pen to paper. ​My childhood ambitions were to one day become an author, a journalist or a teacher. I'm lucky enough that I'm now all three.

From 2008-14 I worked for my most inspiring boss, Dave Harris. Whilst he was writing his second book, "Brave Heads" for Headteachers of schools, he said that it needed a chapter written for Headteachers' Personal Assistants. I laughed, saying "no, that'd be a whole book". He then challenged me to write it.

"Brave PAs: the ultimate guide to being outstanding in a tough job" was published in March 2015, closely followed by "The PA & EA Circus" - my two offerings to the Personal Assistant / Executive Assistant / Admin community.

​I created PICA BOOKS in 2015 as a publishing house of books with an educational / learning / supportive slant.


All PICA BOOKS volumes are available worldwide from Amazon.
