About the Author

Narinder Dhami

Narinder Dhami is one of the four authors of the Rainbow Magic series, written under the name of Daisy Meadows.She now lives in Cambridge with her husband and her cats.

Dhami's father was an Indian immigrant from the Punjab who arrived in the UK in 1954, and her mother is English.[1] She grew up in a multi-cultural environment, with Indian and western cultures both major influences in her life, and was educated at Wolverhampton Girls' High School and Birmingham University, where she took a degree in English in 1980. Dhami started working as a teacher, and for the next nine years she taught in primary and secondary schools in Essex and in the London borough of Waltham Forest. During this time, she began writing stories for teenage magazines, and contributed many photo-stories to the now-defunct Jackie magazine, published by DC Thomson. Eventually, Narinder gave up teaching for a full-time writing career. For the last few years, she has concentrated on contemporary realistic fiction about young girls of Asian origin growing up in modern Britain. Her Babes trilogy is extremely popular with girls between 9 and 14 years of age.
