    Nick Rolfe is a 44-year-old rock-music-loving mother, wife and teacher. Rolfe has taught across England from Foundation Stage up to Year 7 (Sixth Grade in US). As a SENCo, she has worked with challenging children with behaviour and learning difficulties. She has worked in a variety of primary schools, including a Sikh faith school and a Pupil reintegration unit. The author has two daughters, one who is transgender. Rolfe's very brave and beautiful teenage transgender daughter has been living as her true self for over a year now. As a mother, Rolfe found it a struggle to explain the concept of transgender to her 5-year-old daughter so created Rainbow Street. Rainbow Street is a series of picture books with LGBTQ characters aimed at Foundation Stage and Year 1 (Kindergarten in US). Rolfe drew upon her 21 years primary teaching experience to write and illustrate the books. The author lives with her family in a crazy house in Leicestershire, England.
