About the Author

From an early age Liz wanted to be a Thunderbird. Upon discovering that they were fictional and wooden she decided to be a writer. She wrote her GCSE coursework about a
woman who cooks people in pies and later won the Tunbridge Wells Girls Grammar School creative writing prize.
She went on to study book-reading at some universities in order to avoid getting a job and to spend the next four years in pyjamas. After working on a building magazine and a science magazine, she had the wonderful and very exciting chance to write a story.
As well as all book-related things, she also likes comedy and cats.
