About the Author

Linda is the bestselling author of fifteen books for young people and an award-winning TV play. She's given numerous interviews on radio and TV and entertained hundreds of school and university students. A fellow of the Royal Literary Fund, she's worked for three years with biologists at Sheffield University. Because weird stuff happens to Linda... dreaming about things just before they happen, feeling surrounded by coincidence and synchronicity and thinking about her friends just before they phone... she’s embarked on a quest to discover just what's going on. A Quaker, she lives in Sheffield, with a large aquarium fitted inside her piano.
