Pat Moon - Author

Pat Moon's experience as a housemother in a children's home and as a teacher have helped her to create the vivid, true-to-life characters found in her novels.
Pat Moon wrote her first novel, Double Image, after attending Jan Mark's course on writing for children. Published in 1993 by Orchard Books. Double Image went on to be shortlisted for the Smarties Book Prize.
Her second novel, The Spying Game met with equal success and was shortlisted for the Guardian Children's Fiction Award and the Writer's Guild Award. It was also broadcast on BBC Radio 4. Nathan's Switch and The Ghost of Sadie Kimber are her latest novels for older readers.
Pat has since gone on to write equally successful stories for younger children including Do Not Read This Book which was one of the Federation of Children's Book Groups' Pick of the Year and was shortlisted for the Sheffield Children's Book Award. Do Not Read Any Further continued the series and irrepressible Finch returns with more secrets in life, love, lies and truth in Do Not Read Or Else in May 2006.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.
