Anne Booth

  • 5 stars across 24 books
    Anne lives in a village in Kent with her husband, four children, two dogs, and three hens. She has worked as a bookseller, a university lecturer, and in a residential care home. She writes delightful picture books and compelling middle grade fiction about friends, families, and the small but significant choices we all face every day. Sophy Williams is an award-winning illustrator with twenty-five years experience illustrating childrens books. She spent some of her childhood in exotic locations such as Singapore, Hong Kong and the Middle East and often finds her illustrations being influenced by these places. Her pictures are filled with atmosphere and drama created with soft pastels. She now lives by the Kennet and Avon canal in Bradford on Avon with her husband, author/illustrator MP Robertson, their two lanky teenage sons and a mischievous grey cat called Hamish. When not illustrating she sings and performs in a choir, grows fruit and veg on her allotment and drinks lots coffee with her friends.
