    Robin Stevens Biography
    Robin Stevens was born in California and grew up in an Oxford college, across the road from the house where Alice in Wonderland lived. She has been making up stories all her life.

    When she was twelve, her father handed her a copy of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and she realised that she wanted to be Agatha Christie when she grew up.

    She spent her teenage years at Cheltenham Ladies’ College, reading a lot of murder mysteries and hoping that she’d get the chance to do some detecting herself (she didn’t). She went to university, where she studied crime fiction, and then worked at a children's publisher.

    Robin now lives in London with her husband and her pet bearded dragon, Watson.'

    Robin is the author of the Murder Most Unladylike series. The first book in the series, Murder Most Unladylike, won the Waterstones Children's Book Prize in the young fiction category.

    Robin's latest book Mistletoe and Murder is out now and would be perfect for a Christmassy read.

    Robin Stevens Facts
    When Robin isn't reading or writing, she's baking! Her favourite bunbreak would be a cinnamon bun.

    Robin has some REAL arsenic in her house! (In a very safe place, very far away from the kitchen!)
