Francesca Simon spent her childhood on the beach in California and started writing stories at the age of eight. She worked as a journalist and it was reading so many stories to her son that encouraged her to try writing for children. She wrote her first Horrid Henry book in 1994 and combined sales of all books and audiobooks now stands at over 20,000,000 copies in the UK alone. Francesca is also the author of the The Sleeping Army and The Lost Gods for older readers as well as The Monstrous Child which was recently staged at the Royal Opera House. Her favourite film is Singing in the Rain.
