    I was born in Bristol, but raised in a hamlet on the outskirts of Southend on Sea, by a family of avid readers So avid, in fact, my mum enrolled me in the local library before I d even emerged from the womb Which was awkward for all concerned As a child, I had an unhealthy obsession with Murder, She Wrote and aged seven, convinced my parents to buy me a Petite Super International typewriter for Christmas, so I could be just like Jessica Fletcher After studying a 4 year Broadcasting Degree at the University of Leeds, I realised there were too few home makeover shows in the world, and worked on a number of DIY and Garden programmes for UK Style I then returned to studying and graduated from an MA in Screenwriting course at the London College of Communication in 2008 I live in North London I have yet to solve any murders

But I had a day of [...]

    Really sweet little story with slightly madcap characters, a fun plot, and some nice messages wrapped within. Will definitely be pushing to the Pete Johnson and Morris Gleitzman crowd.

    Read this book with the Year 7s over the course of this term. It's good enough but honestly, it's a little too much on the ridiculous side for me!
