About the Author
lives in Liverpool with her husband and four children. She worked as a primary school teacher before taking a career break to bring up her family, which also allowed her more time to spend on her love of writing. When teaching, her big passion was helping children to develop the skills they needed to learn to read, and encouraging them to develop a love of books. Even now she love nothing more than seeing her own children with their nose in a book. The greatest inspiration for her own writing is her children, who provide her with an abundance of new ideas on a daily basis.
Born and raised in a lower-class Hispanic community that prided itself with its Chicano attitude, Robert Garcia‘s first inspirations were the drawings on the letters his uncles sent home from prison and the gang graffiti painted on the walls of his neighborhood. Allowing the reality of his culture to breathe through him, he relied heavily on his surroundings to teach him about life. This pushed him to develop a passionate urge to respond to the harsh conditions of his living environment by projecting his voice through the creativity of art.
