Liz Kessler has written eighteen novels for children and young adults. Her books include the best-selling Emily Windsnap series about a girl who is part human and part mermaid. Her other books aimed at the Middle Grade (8 – 12 year old) readership include books about fairy godsisters, time travel and superpowers. Liz’s first Young Adult novel, Read Me Like A Book, was published last year, and features a seventeen-year-old girl exploring her sexuality and coming out as gay. Her second YA novel, Haunt Me, comes out in October this year and features a love triangle with a ghostly flavour. She has also written a series of Poppy the Pirate Dog Early Readers inspired by her Dalmatian, and co-written with her partner a new Early Reader series about Jenny the Pony.
