Michele Clark McConnochie lives in New Zealand with her husband and step-daughter, and their two rescue-cats. She writes features for local newspapers, teaches creative writing and has been a full-time writer of children’s books since 2014.

She is Welsh but originally from Shrewsbury, Shropshire, and worked in education as a teacher and manager for over 20 years. She supports Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club, and secretly she is a bit of a geek.

She hopes people will have fun reading her books and that they will make a difference.
