Lou attended a writing for children class at City Lit some years ago. Since then she has written many popular books for newly fluent and middle grade readers as well as picture books. She has also written for Cbeebies television. She is very proud that so many of her past students have achieved publication success of their own.
Varsha Shah always dreamt of being a writer. After studying Law at Cambridge University, she worked for several years as a solicitor and has written articles for publications including Legal Week, Legal Week Global, The Times Education Supplement, and the on-line edition of Harper's Bazaar. She has taught English as a foreign language in both Japan and Canada. She loves both travelling - and basketball! Her debut novel Ajay and The Mumbai Sun was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, shortlisted for the Little Rebels Award and nominated for the Yoto- Carnegie Medal for writing.
