About the Author
Cecilia Busby was brought up living on boats and caravans, and had some hair-raising adventures as a child, crossing the English Channel in a barge and helping rebuild an old ruin in the wilds of Wales. She draws on these experiences in writing funny, fast-paced adventure stories for children with a twist of magic. She has published two fantasy series for readers 7-11 with Templar, and has run workshops at Hay, Edinburgh, Cheltenham and Oxford Literary festivals. She regularly visits schools to talk about her books and run writing workshops.
