Our last Professional Series event of the year is an amazing panel made exclusively of SCBWI British Isles debut authors! Not only will it be an immensely informative evening, but also a great social event – don't forget to sign up if you're coming!
We're proud to announce that we will be hearing from five freshly minted authors who are willing to reveal the heartaches and the triumphs of their journey to publication. So join us at the Theodore Bullfrog to hear from our rising SCBWI British Isles stars about what they learnt on their first step on the publishing ladder and what tips/tricks aspiring authors and illustrators might be wise learning.
Our panel includes:
Jackie Marchant: "I'm Dougal Trump and it's NOT my Fault!" was published by Macmillan in July. The second Dougal Trump book is out in May 2013. Jackie lives in Northwest London with her mad family and even madder dog which has inspired much material for her Dougal Trump books.
Helen Peters: The Secret Hen House Theatre was written during the school holidays and revised whilst at home with young children. It was published in April by Nosy Crow. She now working on a second book set in the world of The Secret Hen House Theatre. Helen lives in north London with her family and two guinea pigs called Snowy and Gary.
Teri Terry: Slated, the first of three futuristic thrillers for young adults, was published in May by Orchard Books in the UK, and will be on sale in the US and Canada in early 2013. The footpaths and canal ways of the Buckinghamshire Chilterns where she now lives inspired much of the setting of Slated.
Paula Harrison: The Rescue Princesses stories are published by Nosy Crow and are an adventure series for young girls about princesses who rescue animals using bravery, teamwork and ninja moves. Four titles have been published this year, with six more to come. Paula lives with her husband and children in Buckinghamshire, where she spent years teaching in primary schools and now writes full time.
Jasmine Richards: her first novel The Book of Wonders was published in the States earlier this year. Her second novel, Oliver Twisted, written under her pen name JD Sharpe, was published the month after in the UK. She's also a senior commissioning editor at Oxford University Press Children's Books and worked briefly at New Scotland Yard before joining the publishing industry.
