Lorraine Carey is the author of Cinderella’s Sister and the Big Bad Wolf. She was brought up in the Dorset countryside, a six mile cycle from the sea. Lorraine spent her early years digging for fairies in the back garden, and hoping upon hope that she’d wake up on Christmas morning to find a horse behind the settee. Her proudest moment was to wear a satin tutu, with ruffs, on a float in the town carnival, and she’s been hoping they’ll ask her to do it again ever since.
Lorraine now lives in London with her son Kassius, their cat Merlin, and an amazingly invincible fish named Bob. Whenever she can, Lorraine is back off down to the seaside for a paddle, even in the winter when it’s rough.
