Holly Webb is an internationally best-selling author of books for children. She was born in London and studied Classics at Cambridge University, followed by an MA in History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art. Her first job was as a children’s book editor. In fact, she wrote her first book while taking the train to and from the office. After having her first child, she gave up work as an editor to write full time.
Holly has written over 130 books, spanning picture books, chapter books and middle-grade fiction. Her work has been translated into over 30 languages, and in Russia she is the best-selling English language author, outselling JK Rowling.
Holly lives in Berkshire, with her husband and three children. Her pet cats are always nosying around when she is typing on her laptop, and they have inspired several of her stories with their adventurous antics!
