In fact, I have read several of her books to my daughter already and I think they're brilliant!

But, in a nutshell, she has been a teacher, mum, and now writer! Even though, when she was at school she was not convinced about English (this really rings a bell for me). In her own words, "I was already too much a writer at heart to enjoy dissecting other people's stories". I have to say that I loved dissecting stories, but I hated learning about grammar!
I love the range of books this author has written. From picture books, non-fiction, and even a guide for parents to help children with maths! Fantastic.
I am really looking forward to hearing her talk and suggest you check out her books now via Amazon too... Amazon link. You can also look her up on TWITTER.
