When she wasn't out riding her bike or making things out of loo rolls and scraps of fabric, Ruth Brocklehurst spent much of her childhood reading - mainly stories about historical characters. Since then, she has been lucky enough to combine her love of books, stories and history in her job as an editor and writer for Usborne. If she could go back in time she'd like to meet Mary Queen of Scots.
Her book about the Victorians won the Longman/History Today New Generation Award.
