I was born in London and lived there for over 30 years. I used to think that I wanted to be a ballet dancer and I even went to the Royal Ballet School for a while. But I changed my mind about dancing and my first job was at a charity that promoted books and reading throughout the United Kingdom. I was really lucky because I worked in a library full of children’s books – it had a copy of every single book published in the UK for young people. I loved reading all the books and I met lots of interesting authors and illustrators. After working in the library for three years, I then got a job working for in the House of Commons for an MP. I only stayed there for a year because I missed working with books so much.
Next, I worked in children’s publishing house, where I learned to be an editor. After working there for a few years, I moved to another publishing house. I really enjoyed working with children’s books but I was also interested in the other books for adults that we published. So I then moved to the BBC where I was the Editorial Manager of BBC Books, working on adult, children’s, and foreign language learning books. It was a brilliant job and I loved it. After my first child was born, I started working as a freelance book editor and also started to write more children’s books. I also edited a magazine for teachers of English, as well as a regional magazine about Kent, where I now live.
