Berlie Doherty has written over 60 books as well as plays for radio, theatre and television, short stories and poetry. She has won major awards and prizes in all fields, including the Carnegie Medal (twice), the Writers’ Guild award (twice), Film and Television Award and Royal Philharmonic Society award (for a libretto), and was shortlisted for the International Astrid Lingren award.

Berlie has been published in 21 different languages, and has travelled the world extensively, speaking at International literature festivals and conferences.

She began over 30 years ago by writing short stories for BBC Radio 4 Morning Story, and has published one short story collection, ‘Running on Ice’. Much of her writing is for young adults, though she also writes picture book texts, children’s books and has two novels for adults, ‘Requiem’ and ‘The Vinegar Jar’, both of which are due to be republished in 2014 by Cybermouse MultiMedia Ltd.

Berlie is best known for ‘Dear Nobody’, which won many awards both as a young adult novel and as a play for theatre and for radio. It has also been made into a television drama.

Her book for children, ‘Street Child’, (also a play script) is read and performed extensively in schools throughout the country, and she is currently completing a long-awaited sequel.

Crossing the Glacier’ won First prize in the Daily Telegraph short story competition and was published in the Daily Telegraph Book of Contemporary Short Stories. It has also been broadcast on BBC Radio 4.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

The selections are so varied and the reader reviews are so helpful. A fantastic website for those who love books.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
