AuthorAfter a degree in Modern Languages, I started my career as a book editor for companies such as Robert Hale and BBC Books. I went freelance on the birth of my first child and since then have worked as an editor on several b small titles before starting to write books myself. I am the author of all the titles in the Gruesome Series and acknowledge the lively contribution of my daughter, Alice, and son, William, who are definitely keen grossologists! I have also written three titles in the animal activity series – Horses, Dogs, Cats – and most recently I've written the new Science Around You series, exploring fun science in and around the house. Our family spent several years living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, but we have now re-settled in the UK.
