About me

I'm a children's TV writer, author and illustrator, based in London. Thanks for visiting my site.


Credits include episodes of 'Peppa Pig' for Nick Jr, and 'Sarah and Duck', 'Dipdap', 'Olobob Top' and 'The Adventures of Abney and Teal' for CBeebies.


I am coauthor of two children’s books with Tom Duxbury, Santa’s Beard and Reindeer’s Nose, published by Walker Books and illustrated by Nick Sharratt.

I also write for adults. My comic strips have featured in the Guardian, Vice, Glamour and Art Review magazines, my short films have been shown at festivals around the world.

I’m always interested to hear about new offers of work. Email me or contact my agents, Emily Wraith at Berlin Associates (for TV) or Elinor Cooper at DKW (for books). Or find me on Twitter or LinkedIn.


“Matilda has provided the majority of plot-lines for our writing, as well as much of the narration and many, many general ideas and lots of editorial work throughout the whole process. Her ideas have been consistently funny, original, surprising, and downright numerous and I basically can't recommend her highly enough!”
