When I was little, I wanted to be an actress. I still wanted to be one when I grew up, so I became one!

Having trained at RADA (Royal Academy of Dramatic Art) I worked in what was called ‘weekly rep’. The actors put on a play every week, performing one at night and rehearsing the next one during the day. It’s hard work. I shed kilos. Then I took a banana boat to Jamaica where I helped research a frog that hatches baby frogs and not tadpoles. I moved on to New York where I did some exciting, experimental theatre. Back in England, I was lucky enough to join the Unicorn Theatre for Children in London.

It was there that I discovered I wanted to be a writer, too. And so that’s what I did. I wrote lots of plays for the company, and I haven’t stopped writing for children since.

I work in London and from a small house on the edge of a forest where Moon, the cat, Turpin, the dog and his daughter, Beatrix, make room for me. Beatrix has more the look of a hairy marrow than a dog but she can’t see herself so she doesn't care.

Once there was a princess who had no kingdom. All she had was a pony and cart, and a red umbrella to keep her dry from the rain. What she lacked in wordly possessions though, she made up for in kindness, cleverness and beauty - qualities that made all the rich princes with kingdoms to spare want to marry her. But what is a kingdom without love?
