About the author (2011)

Dear world, My name is Minnie Swinburne and I live in sunny England with my mum and step-dad. I finished 6th form in 2010 at Abbotsholme School Rocester having done English Literature, Business studies and Psychology. After that I took a year out as a break and went to work in Moldova with orphans for 2 months. Moldova is amazing, and Chisinau is one of the most chilled out places I have ever been. It's truly magical. After that I went to Milan to work as an Au Pair which was equally fun. I came back to England for the summer as I realized it was the last time I could spend any period over 2 months with my family. I got the idea for my main character when walking along an alley way to a friend’s house and then wrote the book from there. It took me 2 months on and off and I fell in love with it. Once the summer is over I am going to Reading University to study English with Primary Education. I have two cats which I think are really mini panthers, one of them answers to "Fatty" and he likes cranberry and raspberry Muller lights. As a family we also have horses, sheep, dogs and chickens. My sheep's name is Pepper and he is the sweetest of the lot.
