About the Author

Sally Prue

Sally Prue first started making up stories as a teenager, when she realized that designing someone else's adventures was almost as satisfying as having her own. After leaving school Sally joined practically all the rest of her family working at the nearby paper mill. She now teaches recorder and piano and enjoys walking, painting, day-dreaming, reading and gardening. Cold Tom, Sally's first book won the Branford Boase Award and the Smarties Prize Silver Award.

Sally has two daughters and lives with her husband in Hertfordshire.
