Sarah Griffiths

Exemplary Author of Children's Books

This is my very first book to be published and I am so proud to be able to bring my characters to life for children. My love of rhyme and storytelling has grown into a passion for writing my own stories for young children.

During my years as a teacher, I loved being a story teller to children. Being able to captivate their imaginations and watch the delight and excitement on their faces is hugely rewarding. I now have the opportunity to inspire children’s imaginations, giving them stories that offer them wonder, laughter and excitement. Through the magical world of story telling my aim is to intrigue children with my rhyming tales as they begin their incredible journey of learning to read and write. I want to inspire children’s minds and motivate the young story writers of the future!

I am currently writing stories for children and beginning my journey as a self-published children's author. I am also a full-time mum to my 2-year-old daughter. My career path has been varied as I have worked in administration and then I moved into Primary School teaching.

Reading and writing stories has always been a great passion of mine. I started writing rhyming tales when I was teaching. This then became a hobby that I shared with family and close friends. When I became a mother, I realised my dream was to become a published children's author so that I could bring my stories to life for my daughter Eva.

The stories I have written are rhyming tales. They have been inspired from children I have taught, places visited and also using my creativity and imagination. I have a real enthusiasm for rhyming tales. This interest in rhyme, has always been there. I grew up listening to stories and rhymes by Roald Dahl. My favourites were 'Revolting Rhymes' and 'The Magic Finger'. Another author that has inspired my writing is Alan Ahlberg. My favourite stories are 'Burglar Bill' and 'Each Peach Pear Plum'. Also his poetry collection, 'I heard it in the Playground'.
