I'm a fiftysomething author of books for young adults. I live in Bath, England, with my husband, two grown-up children, dog and chickens. I've had 'sensible' jobs for 25 years, and now I'm a writer too. I've been writing for about 15 years, and have published the Numbers trilogy, The Drowing and Water Born. The first book came out in the UK in 2009 and the USA in 2010. My Numbers books explore the gift of being able to see death dates. If you looked in somebody's eyes and saw the date of their death, would it change the way you felt about people? Would it change the way you lived your life? They've been published in 26 countries and optioned for film.
