Meet the Authors

If you want to know more about the authors of the five shortlisted books in our Children's Book Award here are some links to their websites.

Did you know....?
  • Atinuke was born in Nigeria and now tells stories in schools, theatres and festivals all over the world!
  • Steve Hartley is also an astronaut, spy, racing-car driver, trapeze-artist and vampire-hunter!
  • Chris Higgins has four daughters and is rapidly acquiring a whole bunch of grandchildren even though she feels far too young to be a granny!
  • Sian Pattenden has been one half of a band called 100% Ponies and has appeared in Doctor Who as Young Tegan (wearing a wig.)!
  • Alex T Smith did want to have careers in space travel, cookery and being a rabbit, but finally decided to become an author and an illustrator!
