Sonia Oatley, Lynne Barrett-Lee - Authors


Sonia Oatley was born in Maesteg. Her Dad had been a coalminer since the age of 14, and her mum looked after her, her sister and her three brothers. At sixteen she left school on the Friday and started work on the Monday in a factory making Italian fine porcelain figurines. Afterwards she worked in several positions until her children were born: Rebecca in 1995, Jessica in 1997 and Jack in 2002.

Lynne Barrett-Lee was born in London and became a full time writer shortly after moving to Cardiff in 1994.

Lynne’s ghostwriting career began in 2007, when she was approached by Melanie Davies, a former patient of her Oncologist husband, to ask if she would help her write the story of her amazing life. The result was the 2009 title Never Say Die. Since then, Lynne has collaborated on a wide range of titles. As well as penning standalone memoirs as diverse as the antics of the world’s biggest dog, Giant George, and the incredible story of a girl raised by monkeys, she also currently ghosts a series for a major UK publisher, the first two titles of which are both Sunday Times bestsellers.
