Theresa Tomlinson began her career by qualifying as a teacher, and taught in primary schools for many years. She started creating picture books for her own children, and has since written and published many books for all ages. Having spent most of her life in the north of England, many of her novels are located there, and have grown a popular and loyal fan base of readers.
