More About the Author

I grew up in Haywards Heath, West Sussex and after a stint au pairing in Paris and some half-hearted attempts to backpack across Europe, did a degree in English and got a job as a journalist on a trade paper. When I got bored of writing about computers, I swapped to articles for national newspapers on everything from making compost to family holidays in Sweden.

My first fiction was a picture book called Rainy Day, published by Transworld. I also wrote a number of books for schools about things like death and stress and drug abuse. Cheerful stuff! Now I write thrillers for teenagers and young adults. I'm addicted to intriguing stories - whether in books or on TV or the big screen - and that feeling of desperately needing to know what's going on or what happens next. That's what I aim for in my own novels.

My first, 'Now You See Me' is out with Usborne in May 2014.

By K.L. on 21 Dec. 2010
Format: Paperback
The book introduces the reader to a group of deaf children and a deaf adult and how deafness affects their everyday life, whether it is at school, at work or life in general. We learn about the different types of deafness and the causes, technology that assists hearing such as cochlear implants, hearing aids and loop systems, different communication methods, e.g. sign language and textphones.

This is a book for someone of secondary school age who wants to learn basic knowledge in deafness and wants it explained to them without all the confusing technical terms. The book may just help you understand more about deafness if you have a deaf family member or are thinking about studying deafness issues or British Sign Language. It barely touches on Deaf Culture and the Deaf community, which is disappointing, but is that because the author, Emma Haughton, is a hearing person? If so, maybe she hasn't personally had much access to the deaf world to understand that these are a big part of most deaf people's lives?

To understand some of the terms used in the book there is a glossary at the back. Under `Getting help' and `Further information' at the back of the book, a couple of the website addresses listed are defunct, so search Google if you want to find out more info on deaf issues and organisations. If you want an easy to read book about deafness, then this is the book for you.
