Sharon Gosling writes books and articles about television and film, and has written, produced and directed audio dramas. Her debut book for middle-grade readers, The Diamond Thief, won the Redbridge Children’s Book Award in 2014. Her YA novel FIR was shortlisted for the Lancashire Book of the Year 2017. Sharon and her husband live in a very remote village in northern Cumbria, surrounded by fells, sheep, and a host of lovely neighbours who will one day make very good characters in their own book. When she’s not writing, she bakes a lot of cake and bread, attempts to grow things in an allotment, and catches the baby rabbits unhelpfully brought in by the cat.
