Welcome to my website

I write books for children under the name Yvonne Morrison... and books for adults using the name Yvonne Morrin. Hello! Thanks for visiting. So, what can I tell you about myself? Well, as you can see from my favourite top when I was little (yep, I was little once), my first name is Yvonne. My last name is Morrin, but before I got married, it was Morrison. I've stuck with my unmarried name for writing children's books, and I'm using my married name for adults' and teens' books. Here's a photo of me on my first day of school, holding one of my cats. I've had lots of cats through my life. They're my favourite animal... ...except for monkeys. Now, why am I in this photo with a capuchin monkey? Well that's a long story. You see, I've always had a lot of trouble figuring out what I wanted to be when I grew up. I tried lots of things... meteorologist (that's a weather-predicting person)... physicist (that's a science-type person)... teacher (you know what that is). Most recently, though, I trained as a zookeeper. I wanted to work at wildlife sanctuaries with animals who needed help. After training I was lucky enough to get a brilliant job at a sanctuary. The monkey in this photo is called Max. I've had a few other odd jobs too. One of the best was being a swing dance teacher, along with my husband. That's him in the photo struggling to throw me into the sky. And here he is on our wedding day. Awwww.... The clothes we are wearing date from the 1930s. One of my hobbies is collecting vintage clothes from long ago. I also like sewing vintage style creations. But it's not just vintage clothes I like to dress up in. I love to play dress ups with all sorts of costumes. Here I am at a "Pride and Prejudice with Zombies" party. Braaaaaiiiins!                                                     So that's me, and the things I                                                    like and my hobbies. What else? Oh yes, I'm also a writer! If you are interested in finding out more about my books,  please check out the links at the top. Ciao!
