Janet is a retired primary school Deputy Headteacher.

Several years ago she gave up her job, sold her

house and bought a narrowboat.

She now lives aboard with her husband Mike and Chico their Jack Russell, spending her time writing books and creating stories for children’s TV.


fun for the whole family!

When making Chico's TV series we made sure that it would be fun for all ages to watch.

Each episode contains antics that everyone can relate to and engaging dialogue with humour for the whole family.

So sit back for a relaxing few minutes and watch Chico Chugg getting into mischief with his friends and family.

Enjoy!  Click here to watch the series.
