My name is Jemma and I have two jobs - by day I'm a Project Manager, by evening and weekend I write children's adventure stories!

Over the years I've lived and worked in London, Exeter, New York and Delaware and am now living close to where I grew up in Sevenoaks, Kent.

Reading has always been one of my favourite things to do; during reading hour at primary school I would become so absorbed in imaginary worlds that at the end my name would have to be called several times before I'd notice! One teacher even arranged a hearing test for me! (My hearing was fine - my listening skills, not so much!)

A good book becomes like an old friend, being revisited again and again. I hope to entertain young readers with adventures and laughs to enjoy alongside the characters.
