More About the Author

I never thought I'd write books for children, but somehow 'Zelah Green' was born and it's been uphill all the way ever since! 'Zelah' won the Manchester Children's Book Awards in 2010 and was shortlisted for the Waterstones, the NASEN and the Young Minds awards too. A sequel to Zelah followed (Zelah Green: One More Little Problem(Egmont) and then two new books published by Frances Lincoln and featuring fourteen-year-old Lilah May (The Taming of Lilah May/Lilah May's Manic Days). 2012 marked the publication of my first ghost novel for teens, 'The Haunting of Tabitha Grey' (Egmont, April 2nd). The novel was shortlisted for seven awards. I had such fun researching this novel in the spooky manor house that inspired it! My latest book deal is with Usborne and my YA novel 'The Earth is Singing' will be published by them in January 2015 to tie in with International Holocaust Memorial Day. The novel features Hanna Michelson, a fifteen-year-old Jewish girl who finds herself caught up in the horrors of Nazi invasion in 1941.By way of contrast I also have a book for children out now, all about a girl who bakes! 'The Baking Life of Amelie Day' is published by Curious Fox. My first book on Virginia Woolf, 'Virginia Woolf's Women' is now being published as an e-book

I really enjoyed this book. The story took off quickly, it had loads of 'oomph' and it made me smile.
