    Siobhan Dowd was a highly regarded author, winning the Branford Boase Award, the Bisto Award and, posthumously, the Carnegie Medal. She worked in human rights in the UK and America, particularly for writers' organisation PEN. 'The Pavee and the BufferGirl' was her first story, followed by four remarkable novels written before her death at age 47 in 2007. Her legacy includes the Siobhan Dowd Trust, working to bring books to deprived children, and 'A Monster Calls', a novel adapted by Patrick Ness from one of her ideas.
