    Fleur Hitchcock Biography
    When she was eight, Fleur wrote a story about an alien and a jelly. It was called The Alien and the Jelly. She grew up a little, studied English, and, for twenty years, sold Applied Art in the city of Bath. All that time she wrote hundreds of press releases and a few stories, but in the end motherhood won and she retreated from the Art world, only writing when the children were asleep. When her younger child was seven, she embarked on the Writing for Young People MA at Bath Spa.

    Between parenting and writing, Fleur works with her husband, a Toymaker, looks after other people’s gardens, and grows vegetables.:

    She has written 10 books for children since 2012 when her first novel SHRUNK was published by Hot Key Books and there are plenty more in the pipeline.
