Marcela Ferreira


I'm Marcela and I write picture books.


I am represented by the fabulous Cathpole Agency and have recently accepted an offer for a fourth picture book!


So it’s time to make some changes...starting with my website - welcome!



Writing can be quite isolating, and SE Sussed (a social media campaign I created as part of the Digital Mum's  course) was a great way to stay engaged with the world outside. My local community became a real lifeline, which is why I am still a big supporter of all things local!


Though writing for children is my focus, I still try and highlight the joys of South East London living when I can - family style. So if you want to keep an eye on what is going on in the area, or if you enjoy learning about children’s books you can follow me on Twitter or Instagram .
