Marcela Ferreira


I am a children's writer, and a local mum living in South East London.


I am lucky enough to be represented by the fabulous Cathpole Agency and am on my way to publish my first Picture book!


Writing can be quite isolating, and SE Sussed (a campaign I created as part of the Digital Mum's social media 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. Places, events, shops, markets, artists, with added content about children’s books of course!


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, Instagram or Facebook.
