Originally from America, Mo moved to London because she wanted to live abroad but spoke no foreign languages. After a brief and unsuccessful stint as a serving wench near the Tower of London Mo found work as an actress and comedy performer. It was when she toured the UK and Ireland as a storyteller that she started writing for kids. Mo has six My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish books out with Macmillan in the UK and the US. The latest is Jurassic Carp. The series has now been translated into 12 languages worldwide. Mo’s first picture book , The Fintastic Fishsitter, was published by Macmillan in 2015 and her newest picture book, More People to Love Me just came out with Macmillan in August 2016. She is writing a new series at the moment when she is not being distracted by her kittens.
