About the Author

Anne Cassidy

Anne Cassidy lives in Essex. She was a teacher for twenty years. Her first book was published in 1991 and she has since published over twenty teen novels. She is the author of Looking for JJ, which was shortlisted for the Whitbread Award 2004 and the Carnegie Medal 2005 and won the 2004 Booktrust Teenage Book Award.

As a crime writer, inspiration for Anne’s books often comes from news stories of teen crime. Anne is also interested in the philosophical aspect of murder. She says, ‘People take great delight in reading Crime Fiction. Why is this? We live in a modern liberal society which abhors the death penalty yet we soak up murder stories in print and on television. So I asked myself the question is it ever right to murder? Are there any circumstances that make murder the preferable option?’

Anne's 'Ten things I want you to know about me'

I was one of the first people in the country to have plastic surgery on the NHS. I had my ears pinned back. When I came out of the operating theatre my whole head was bandaged up and my mum said she thought I’d had brain surgery.

I went to a girl’s convent high school. My best friends were the most important people in my life. Sometimes they went off with someone else and it broke my heart. I always took them back. I had no pride.

I wore the shortest mini skirts that I could find. I also wore wigs and false eyelashes and thigh length boots. I was tacky.

My son never reads any of my books. Even though he’s a character in a lot of them. He prefers to read real life stuff about the Mafia.

My husband reads all of my books. He says he likes them but he would say that, wouldn’t he?
