Liss Norton

Liss was nine years old when she won her first writing prize in a poetry competition in the Brownie magazine. She spent most of her childhood reading, and sometimes sits up most of the night to finish a book, when she should be asleep. She thinks that being an author is the best job in the world because she gets to share adventures with her characters – though she tries not to write ghost stories as they're too scary!
    She lives in a small village in Sussex where she and her husband grow organic fruit and vegetables in their enormous garden. If you passed by late at night, you might see her in her garden hunting for slugs by torchlight.
    Liss is a regular visitor to school book weeks and loves meeting young readers and budding writers. Her website address is www.lissnorton.co.uk .
