This is the second outing for the loveable and delusional star-in-the-making - Bathsheba's back!Bathsheba Clarice de Trop is going to school for the first time in her life. The daughter of a world-famous novelist, she has had a pampered, home-tutored - and pretty lonely - lifestyle, till now. But her larger-than-life personality means it's not that easy for her to fit in. After all, she's known as the heroine of all her mother's exciting books - and she has to live up to her name. And so she embarks on an investigation to catch the thief of the school computers - and hopefully win herself some friends into the bargain.Girls will love the hilarious world of Bathsheba, from her glamorous tall tales to those touching home truths.
I've always loved children's books. I started writing when I was thirteen, at boarding school - a darkly humorous fantasy about a girl called Ariadne Gallimaufreys (I like unusual names for characters :)). I still hope to turn that idea into a real novel one day... Jobs I've done include: administrative assistant for a children's literacy charity, children's bookseller in Waterstone's, Brussels, and now writing tutor. I was brought up in Libya and since then have travelled all over the place, spending several years living in Brussels, and time living in Italy.
