Sibeal Pounder

  • 5 stars across 14 books
    Sibeal Pounder used to work for the Financial Times, where she researched the How To Spend It section and wrote the For Goodness' Sake column - interviewing everyone from Veronica Etro to Vivienne Westwood. Now she writes about fabulous witches and bad mermaids in her two much loved series for Bloomsbury. Sibeal's first book, Witch Wars, was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2016.

    Laura Ellen Anderson is a professional children's book author and illustrator with an increasing addiction to coffee (that is, when she's not trying to take over the world or fighting sock-stealing monsters). She spends every waking hour creating and drawing and would quite like to live on the moon when humans finally make it possible.
