Angela McAllister

Angela grew up in a large, extended family where she always managed to find a corner to draw, make things or escape into a book.  She studied philosophy at Middlesex Polytechnic and then worked with children before starting her career in books as an illustrator. She then went on to focus on writing and has since published over sixty books for children.

Angela is married with two children and lives on a smallholding on the edge of Cranborne Chase, where she pursues her interest in archaeology, draws, makes things and escapes into books.
