More About the Author

As a child, Cynthia remembers doing a lot of daydreaming and going on amazing adventures with her favourite storybook characters. Cynthia also began writing and illustrating stories for her younger brother, which was probably the spark that eventually led her to being a writer.

Cynthia has now been writing books for numerous reading schemes for over seventeen years, mainly for Key Stage 1. She writes about the Oxford Reading Tree characters in the ever-popular BBC Magic Key Magazine. Cynthia has also had her poetry published in various anthologies and has written the Core Materials for the Dyslexia Institute.

Cynthia has lived in London and Lichfield but feels most at home in countryside. For the last twenty years she has lived in a remote house whose old front door is guarded by two stone eagles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for teaching from home 29 Dec 2010
I bought the Read at Home Phonics Flashcards and the Stage 1 range of these books for my son to learn to read with. They have worked really well for him. He loves the characters and the sentences are easy to de-code whilst maintaining an entertaining story line. He is now reading the Stage 2 stories and loves it when a new book arrives. Great reading scheme.
