About the author (1984)

Sue Townsend was born in Leicester on April 2, 1946. She left school at fifteen and started writing immediately, alternatley working for the next two decades, in a factory, a shop and a garage. Her most famous creation, the neurotic diarist Adrian Mole, arrived in 1985 in The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4. Since then, 10 million copies have been sold. For twenty years nobody knew that Leicester housewife, Mrs Townsend, was a writer. She joined a writers' group at Leicester's Phoenix Theatre and was soon installed as the Writer in Residence there. Townsend's other books include The Queen and I, Number Ten and Public Confessions of a Middle-Aged Woman. She has diabetes and, as a result, is now blind.
