The Authors:

Adele Geras

Adèle Geras was born in Jerusalem. She was educated at Roedean School, Brighton and St. Hilda’s College, Oxford. She’s been an actress and a teacher but since 1976, she has written more than 90 books for readers of all ages.

Her first adult novel, ‘Facing The Light’ was sold to more than 20 countries around the world. Her latest Young Adult book is ‘Dido’ and for younger readers, she has just published the third in the Tutu Tilly series, ‘My Ballet Dream’.

Rory Clements

Rory Clements was born on the edge of England in Dover, the son of a Royal Naval officer and a former Wren. His early schooling was in Germany and Malta before being packed off to boarding school at the age of nine, followed by grammar school at thirteen.

In 2015, ‘Holy Spy’, his seventh book in the John Shakespeare series, entered the Sunday Times Top 10 bestseller list. A TV series based on the books is currently in development by Mammoth Screen, producers of Poldark and Endeavour.

Joyce Dunbar

Joyce never expected to be a writer. Much to her surprise, she passed some exams and went to University - Goldsmith's College, London. She completed her degree and trained to be a teacher.

She has published over 80 books, and written a whole lot more. She has two new books in the pipeline, ‘Tibbs, The Post Office Cat’, to be illustrated by Claire Fletcher (Quarto Books) and ‘Is it Really Nearly Christmas?’ to be illustrated by Victoria Turnbull (Hatchette).

Anthony Horowitz

Anthony Horowitz is one of the most prolific and successful writers working in the UK – and is unique for working across so many media. Anthony is a born polymath; juggling writing books, TV series, films, plays and journalism.

Anthony has written over 40 books including the bestselling teen spy series ‘Alex Rider’, which he adapted into a movie that was released worldwide in 2006. He is responsible for creating and writing some of the UK’s most beloved and successful television series, producing the first seven episodes (and the title) of Midsomer Murders. He is the writer and creator of award-winning drama series Foyle’s War, which was the Winner of the Lew Grade Audience award for BAFTA.
