About the Author:

Jean Ure was born in Surrey and wrote her first novel when she was six years old. She spent her teenage years writing and had her first book published when she was sixteen - an event that prompted her to leave school the following year to continue writing.

Jean lives in a three-hundred-year-old house in the centre of Croydon with her husband and their family of rescued dogs and cats.
