About the Author

The writing career of Jemima Pett can be traced back to when she was 8 years old.  The evidence is a small booklet found in her mother’s box of treasures, written in a very childish hand, entitled The Little Stream.  Jemima has created articles and event reports for newsletters and magazines ever since, but early fiction attempts failed for want of suitable inspiration: characters and plot eluded her.  She had a career in business and in environmental research which kept her chained to a desk for many years. Determined to keep writing, she ended up doing manuals, reports, science papers, blogs, journals, anything and everything that kept the words flowing.  Finally the characters jumped into her head with stories that needed to be told….

She now lives in a village in Norfolk with her guinea pigs, the first of whom, Fred, George, Victor and Hugo, provided the inspiration for her stories.
