Jenny Valentine moved house every two years when she was growing up. She has just moved house again, probably not for the last time. She worked in a wholefood shop in Primrose Hill for fifteen years where she met many extraordinary people and sold more organic loaves than there are words in her first novel, Finding Violet Park, which won the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize in 2007. She has also worked as a teaching assistant and a jewellery maker. She studied English Literature at Goldsmiths College, which almost put her off reading but not quite.
Praise for Jenny Valentine: `Valentine has the essential storyteller's gift of making you want to read on - and to know more even after the book is finished.' Guardian `The award-winning Valentine has a keen eye for the idiosyncrasies of young children, and the rhythms of family life.' The Bookseller `[Valentine] has a wonderful ability to take readers right into the hearts and souls of her central characters, and reading her is always a truly vicarious experience.' The Bookbag Praise for The Double Life of Cassiel Roadnight: "Trust and treachery blend into a suspenseful, satisfying story about the choices that we make." The Times `I had high hopes of this one [and] I wasn't disappointed. As a thriller, it works wonderfully well.' The Bookbag "A contemporary thriller so brilliantly written that for two hours I almost forgot to breathe." Amanda Craig, The Times `A compulsive thriller.' Guardian "An enthralling variation of the 'Who am I' theme." Irish Times
