Anne Booth has always wanted to be a children’s writer, but on the way to becoming one has worked in many jobs. Anne lives in Kent in a lovely village with her husband and four children—and the children’s grandfather across the road. They have two hens called Poppy and Anastasia and two dogs called Timmy and Ben. Anne loves tea and once won a Blue Peter badge for writing a poem about two mice in a bucket of rice. Despite this, she does not own any mice.
