Jill Atkins (Author) Escaped teacher, now writing for children with 46 books published so far, ranging from early reading material to teenage novels. I'm married with two grown up children and five grandchildren, no pets, though I used to have three beautiful cats, guinea pigs and rabbits. When I was a child, we kept chickens and I loved them, too. I always have my nose in a book. I read both adult's and children's books. My favourite children's books include The Railway Children by E Nesbit, Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson, River on the Say by Philippa Pearce. My adult reading varies from Charles Dickens to many modern authors. I enjoy listening to music, classical, jazz and some pop. Steve Cox (Illustrator) Steve Cox is an award-winning illustrator.
