Anita Loughrey was a primary school teacher for seventeen years. She decided to become a full-time writer after the birth of her third child. She now has over 80 books published in the UK and many more worldwide. She writes teacher resources, educational fiction and non-fiction on a wide variety of subjects for a wide range of publishers.
Anita also has two monthly columns in the national writing magazine Writers' Forum, one on 'Writing for Children' and another about 'Research Secrets'. She is also a consultant for a variety of educational publishers helping them to match resources to the current national curriculum.
Anita's favourite toy as a child was the typewriter she wrote her autobiography with at the age of ten. As nothing exciting ever happened, she made most of it up. Her interests include writing, reading children's books, knitting, dancing and camping with her family in their VW campervan. She reckons there is nothing better than sleeping under the stars and cooking in the great outdoors, as long as it isn't raining.
