Maria Farrer - Author

Maria Farrer lives in a house in the middle of a field in Somerset with her husband and her very spoilt dog. She used to live on a small farm in New Zealand with a flock of sheep, a herd of cows, two badly-behaved pigs and a budgie that sat on her head while she wrote. She trained as a speech therapist and teacher and later she completed an MA in Writing for Young people. Maria loves language and enjoys reading and writing books for children of all ages, she is the author of two Young Adult novels including the well-received Broken Strings, She likes to ride her bike to the top of steep hills so she can hurtle back down again as fast as possible. She also loves mountains, snow and adventure and one day she dreams of going to the Arctic to see polar bears in the wild.
