Author's Bio

Ali Sparkes grew up in Southampton and despite some exciting months in London and even more exciting months in Lowestoft (where she really experienced life on the edge), still lives in Southampton today, with her husband and two sons. She has worked as a singer, journalist, broadcaster, magazine editor, and the spangle-clad assistant to a juggling unicyclist (frighteningly, there is photographic proof). Ali currently has twenty-eight children's fiction titles published by Oxford University Press including her award-winning novel Frozen in Time, her fantastically fun SWITCH series for younger readers, and her heart-stopping new adventure series about a group of teenagers with special powers, Unleashed.
