Ali Sparkes

Winner of the Blue Peter Award for Frozen In Time, Ali Sparkes has published more than 40 adventures for children and young adults over the past decade. Ali always meant to be a singer and an actress but instead found herself writing for a local newspaper, before joining the BBC as a regional broadcast journalist. After a stint writing comedy shorts for BBC Radio 4 she decided to try writing children's fiction - and in 2004 got her first book deal, for the five part Shapeshifter series, with Oxford Children's Books. Her perhaps darkest novel is Death By Detention - published by Coven - an edgy teen thriller and the first in her new Teen Ops series. See the trailer at Although the Night Series (Night Speakers, Night Raiders, Night Walker and Night Terrors) are literally dark - as most of the action for the insomniac characters takes place in the small hours. See the trailer at Ali's books have been translated into many languages from French and German to Latin American and Japanese. More of her books are translated for Turkey than any other country. Turkey loves Ali's books. And Ali loves Turkish Delight, so it's all good...
