Geraldine McCaughrean & Sophy Williams - Author

Geraldine McCaughrean (born 1951) trained as a teacher but learned only that she was useless at teaching. So she worked instead as a sub at a partwork magazine company, perfect training in cutting to length, abandoning pretentions and writing blurbs. A Carnegie Medallist, three-time winner of the Whitbread and the very first recipient of the Blue Peter Book Award, she has written almost 150 books and plays. In 2006 she was blessed with the chance to write the official sequel to J M Barrie’s Peter Pan at the behest of Great Ormond Street Hospital. Peter Pan in Scarlet has been translated into 38 other languages.

Sophy Williams studied illustration in London. She was highly commended twice for the Reader's Digest Young Illustrator's Award, and was shortlisted for the Mother Goose Award. Sophy lives with her partner and two sons near Bath.
