Mum of one rambunctious toddler and dog mum of an equally mischievous cocker spaniel, Vhairi Jane Moir shoehorns precious writing time into the bedlam of daily life. A Scot now living in Texas, she spent much of her journalism career working in the otherworldly, desert oasis of Dubai. Whilst there, Vhairi penned articles for travel, food, and lifestyle magazines, which saw her interview several film stars, movie moguls, singers, celebrity chefs and top fashion designers along the way. Many were nice; a few were not. Studying Publishing Studies at university in Scotland, she more recently completed a year-long creative writing programme with the Open University, where she earned a distinction. Vhairi has now turned her attentions to her first and forever love – books. From picture books to young person’s fiction; she endeavours to share fun, imaginative and amusing stories, in hope that some might stick in the minds of little – and not-so-little people around the world.
