  • 5 stars across 46 books
    Georgiana lives in a tiny flat in London with a husband, a piano and piles of beautiful books. When not writing, she can usually be found baking brownies and dreaming of owning a Labrador called Watson. Alison Edgson was born in County Down in Northern Ireland and now lives near Newport in Wales. When she's not illustrating children's books, Alison spends most of her free time chasing her chickens out of the vegetable garden and brushing the cat, and loves walking her dogs in the countryside.
