Candy Guard - Author

Candy Guard established her reputation for comic observation with a highly successful strip cartoon in the Observer magazine and created Pond Life, an animated sitcom for Channel 4 that won numerous awards and both critical and popular acclaim. She now combines a career as a writer, animator and illustrator, and also teaches scriptwriting to film and animation students. Candy lives in Catford in South east London with her husband and their very overweight cat, Baddy. She also has three stepdaughters who help to remind her about being twelve. TURNING TO JELLY was her first book for children and she has just finished the follow up; Jelly Has a wobble.
