Author's Bio

Jacqueline Wilson was born in Bath in 1945, but spent most of her childhood in Kingston-on-Thames. She always wanted to be a writer and wrote her first 'novel' when she was nine, filling in countless Woolworths' exercise books as she grew up. As a teenager she started work for a magazine publishing company and then went on to work as a journalist on Jackie magazine (which she was told was named after her!) before turning to writing novels full-time. One of Jacqueline's most successful and enduring creations has been the famous Tracy Beaker, who first appeared in 1991 in The Story of Tracy Beaker. This was also the first of her books to be illustrated by Nick Sharratt. Since then Jacqueline has been on countless awards shortlists and has gone on to win many awards. Jacqueline is one of the UK's favourite authors, and her books are loved and cherished by young readers not only in the UK but all over the world. She has sold millions of books and in the UK alone the total now stands at over 35 million! In 2002 Jacqueline was awarded the OBE for services to literacy in schools and from 2005 to 2007 she was the Children's Laureate. In 2008 she became Dame Jacqueline Wilson. One of Britain's best-loved and most popular personalities, Helen Lederer is a multi-talented professional whose work covers stand-up comedy, acting and TV/radio presenting. She is best known for her role as the dippy Catriona in Absolutely Fabulous where she appeared alongside Jennifer Saunders in all five series of the show. Helen's diverse voice skills have been used for numerous commercials, audiobooks and documentaries. She is known for her unique brand of wit and observational humour, which are reflected in both her writing and presenting work.
