Since having her first book accepted for publication by Penguin at the age of twelve, Harriet Castor has written over forty fiction and non-fiction books for children and young adults. Between books, she has fitted in a History degree at Cambridge University and a variety of jobs, including teaching English in Prague and three years spent with The Royal Ballet as a dance notator. Now she writes as close to full time as her family will tolerate. Harriet often visits schools to talk about writing, and in particular to discuss her numerous books on Tudor history, of which the latest is VIII.
