Jacqueline Rayner is happy to write thousands upon thousands of words of fiction, but has just spent over an hour trying to think of something to say about herself for this biography. She has written books about Doctor Who, Merlin and other TV series, and even some books that aren't connected to TV series at all. She lives in Essex with her husband and twin sons, and spends a lot of time thinking of ways to raise money for http://letsdoitforme.blogspot.com/
About Quick Reads:
"I've been lucky enough to write two Quick Reads, Doctor Who: The Sontaran Games in 2009 and Doctor Who: Magic of the Angels in 2012. Quick Reads is a wonderful initiative providing short, easy-to-read books for people who struggle to find the time for longer works or find them daunting. They aim to open up the world of words for those who've forgotten or never knew how much fun reading can be.
"I have a special reason to love Quick Reads. A few years ago, during a particularly bad bout of ill health, I found myself too unwell to read. This lasted for several months, and as someone who has spent almost every spare second reading for as long as I can remember, it was incredibly frustrating. Then one day my husband came home with a copy of Chickenfeed, a Quick Read by one of my favourite authors, Minette Walters. Slowly, page by page in my sick bed, I managed to get through it. The realisation that reading wasn't lost to me after all is something I'll always be grateful to Quick Reads for."
