About the Author

Gill Arbuthnott

Gill Arbuthnott: "I was born and brought up in Edinburgh, so completely failed to appreciate what a wonderful place it was until I'd lived somewhere else! I studied Zoology at St Andrews University, then did a couple of years medical research in Southampton, but I didn't take to the south of England… When I came back to Edinburgh I took up a biology teaching post, and I've been here ever since.
I'm married, have two children, one cat and occasional use of a snake. I live in the Bruntsfield/Morningside area of Edinburgh, where it now seems to be compulsory to live if you write (or perhaps to write if you live...).
I teach Biology part time, though it often feels like full time, and write whenever I get the chance, which isn't nearly often enough."

GILL ARBUTHNOTT Q&A:

What is the maddest thing you have ever done?

Which of the mad scientists would you have liked to meet and why?

Which discovery would you have liked to have made?

What do you think is the best discovery made by a scientist?

It’s not an important discovery, but it has made a lot of people very happy… The discovery of how to make chocolate so that it starts to melt at the temperature of the human mouth!

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
