Meet The Creators

Hi! I’m Rosie, the founder of Little Pixie Publishing and the author of The Adventures of Alexander Pawsworth. 


I have always loved stories. From an early age my parents encouraged me to learn how to read and gave me access to hundreds of books. I would often be found curled up somewhere cosy with a book and bedtime stories were a highlight of my childhood - especially when my dad would put on different voices and accents, much to the delight of me and my siblings.


At university I studied Acting and then went on to receive a Masters in Shakespeare and Creativity. After graduating, I started working for a company that specialises in delivering drama workshops for people with learning disabilities. It took me a while to realise that at the heart of all that I do - my studies, work and interests - were, and still are, stories. Telling stories, performing stories, writing stories, reading stories, studying stories - I just can't get enough of stories!


Now that I've started sharing my children's stories with the world, I can't imagine I will ever stop. I am passionate about igniting children's imaginations through tales of kindness and acceptance and I am excited to find out where these stories will take me.

Hello! I'm Elaine Pickering, Mum to three (of whom Rosie is the youngest) and Nanna to three adorable grandchildren. I was lucky enough to meet my husband Andy at school 56 years ago, and we've been married for 38 wonderful years.


I love to get creative, so I was delighted when Rosie asked me to illustrate her new book, The Adventures of Alexander Pawsworth!


Drawing and painting allow me to indulge my urge for creativity and my passion for colour, as does gardening, which brings the additional fascination and joy of plants and wildlife. I have a degree in Biology and worked for some years as a microbiologist. I retain a keen interest in science, and also enjoy exercise classes, dancing, walking, cycling, and joining in with all the imaginative games my young grandchildren can invent!


But my favourite pastime of all is reading a good book, either in the fresh air of the garden, surrounded by flowers, butterflies, bees and birds in summer, or curled up by the fire with cushions and a hot drink in winter. I have been in love with books and reading for as long as I can remember. I took enormous pleasure in raising three book-loving children, and now delight in sharing beautiful, funny, and interesting books with my grandchildren. I am looking forward to reading The Adventures of Alexander Pawsworth with them, and hope you enjoy it too.
