About the Author

Ursula Jones

Ursula Jones has had a long and successful career writing for children. In 2003 she won a gold Smartie Award and in 2008 she was awarded the inaugural Roald Dahl Funny Prize. She also trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art; she has a dual career as both a writer and an actress.

Ursula’s creativity was undoubtedly influenced by her unique childhood and early literary encounters. She lived in the house where Arthur Ransome spent his schooldays and where he set much of his well-known Swallows and Amazons series. She also met Beatrix Potter, at that time rather elderly and bad-tempered, who chided her sister for trespassing on her land. Frequently moving house, enjoying an abundance of physical freedom and a lack of parental guidance, Ursula grew up in the perfect environment for nurturing her imagination helping her to develop her own extraordinary gift for storytelling.
