    Already friends, Jan and Sara began working together when Jan's daughter was terrified of a lion-skin rug in a Chelmsford museum. The resulting story, Flat Lion, was never published, but they enjoyed writing so much that they persevered, even though their next attempt didn't get anywhere either. (Well it was about garden gnomes!) In between the cups of tea and gossip, they've produced over 130 stories, several poems and a play. They've written about football, ghosts, football and ghosts, spies and bank robbers, beasts and dinosaurs.
