About the Author

Born and brought up in London, Naomi Burman-Shine adores reading children’s picture books with her two young sons. Naomi, who studied Music and Media Studies at Canterbury Christ Church University, worked for many years as a production accountant for both the BBC and ITV. More recently, Naomi has worked as a voluntary teaching assistant at her sons’ primary school. Passionate about rhyming picture books, Naomi decided to try her hand at writing her own. Naomi’s inspiration for her debut picture book came from her sons’ interest in dinosaurs coupled with their constant requests to own a pet. She hopes that children and adults alike will enjoy reading Stonely’s Pet Dinosaur as much as she enjoyed writing it. Naomi has written a sequel to Stonely’s Pet Dinosaur, which she hopes will be published in the near future.
