About Troy

An experienced head teacher with a career spanning schools in Nottingham City, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. I am passionate about empowering the children in my care to become the best they can be; good citizens who work hard and care for their community. I strongly believe everyone has the right to succeed and no-one should suffer at the hands or harsh words of others. This has led to my most recent venture into writing children’s literature. I have recently published my first book, "The Best Mummy Snails in the Whole Wide World" that tackles issues around same-sex parenting via a non-threatening medium of picture books. This is the first in a series of stories aimed at tackling issues of prejudice and promoting diversity. Upcoming tales will aim to tackle racial tension and financial hardship.
