Pippa Goodhart - Author

Pippa Goodhart completed a history degree and then trained as an infant teacher before taking on a job at Heffers Children’s Bookshop in Cambridge where she worked for five years, latterly as a manager. Moving to Leicester when she married, she began to work as a publisher’s reader and to teach, but began writing when her children were little.

Her first book was published in 1994 and over forty more have been published since then. She teaches writing to adults and works as a consultant.

She has three daughters and a husband who all help her writing by being critical when they are asked to be!
