Jenny Valentine is an award winning writer for Young Adults. She moved house every two years when she was growing up and she has just moved house again, probably not for the last time. She studied English Literature at Goldsmiths College, which almost put her off reading but not quite. Her first novel Finding Violet Park won the Guardian prize in 2007 and since then she has written six more, including Broken Soup and Fire Colour One, as well as Iggy and Me, a series for younger children, and the middle grade series, A Girl Called Joy. Her work has been published in 19 countries. In 2017 she was the Hay Festival International Fellow, spending the year meeting and learning from teenagers all over the world. She lives all over the place and has two daughters.Read more Read less
