Eleanor Hawken

After a childhood devouring books, Eleanor Hawken spent her teenage years at boarding school, with many an opportunity to tell ghost stories by torchlight. Then, with a degree in Philosophy and working as a children's book editor, Eleanor was part of the team that established the Bath Festival of Children's Literature. Eleanor devised the fiction series Will Solvit and has written books under the pseudonym Zed Storm. Then Eleanor travelled the length of the Americas with a laptop; there she wrote her book for teens, The Blue Lady, Hot Key Books. Eleanor now lives in north London.

Of Sammy Feral's Diaries of Weird: 'Pace is everything, colloquial language and dialogue ensuring that the action rattles along helped by a judicious sprinkling of illustrations. Sammy is an engaging protagonist who will appeal to... readers who might be familiar with Charlie Small, Cornelia Funke's 'Ghosthunters' and Eva Ibbotson's younger titles.' - Books for Keeps
