Rowena House spent years as a foreign correspondent in Europe and Africa before turning to fiction. Her debut novel, The Goose Road, was named a Book of the Year by the Daily Telegraph & became an Amazon No. 1 Bestseller on the first weekend after publication. Rowena holds an MA (distinction) in writing for young people, trained as a children’s fiction editor with the Golden Egg Academy, and teaches creative writing in schools, colleges and via the Cornerstones Literary Consultancy. Website:

Carnegie Medal winning Tanya Landman is the author of more than thirty books for children and young adults.

Born and brought up in Kent, Tanya had no intention of becoming a writer until the idea for Waking Merlin popped into her head. “It came from nowhere. It was completely out of the blue.”

Tanya now lives and works in Bideford and the nearby coastline was the inspiration for her Flotsam & Jetsam series.
