The team

SJ Hopwood – Writer & Creator

SharonI have always loved to read and write and would often drive my Mum mad by constantly asking her to give me five random words that I would either include in a poem or a short story. I devoured every single Enid Blyton ‘Famous Five’ book that I could get my hands on and regularly played lead parts in school plays.
