Introducing… My Brand New ‘Partner in Rhyme’!

I’m thrilled to introduce my new ‘Partner in Rhyme’ Andrea Lamballe, a hugely talented professional composer of children’s music.

Andrea is a graduate of The Royal Academy of Music in London, where she studied piano and musical composition. She has travelled the world teaching, composing and performing music. As well as working as a composer for major advertising agencies, Andrea has written over 50 original songs for children.

We’re excited to announce that we will be working together over the coming months to develop a live musical stage show for children based on my book, Fred The Fire-Sneezing Dragon. We’ll be pooling our creative talents to write the music and lyrics for Fred – The Musical!

Andrea says: “I met Fay at a networking event and was really impressed with her work as a children’s author. I love the story of Fred The Fire-Sneezing Dragon and immediately saw great potential to turn the book into a fabulous children’s musical. I’m looking forward to working with Fay to write some catchy songs and lyrics, with plenty of opportunity for audiences to join in and have fun.”

I’ve just submitted an application to the Arts Council England to support my collaboration with Andrea and enable me to explore this new direction for my writing. Watch this space for more news and updates…
