Charlotte Haptie has wanted to be a writer since she was seven, but has had a number of more sensible jobs in between that and publishing her first book. Her first literary success and only previous publication was the sale of an idea for a Valentine's card. She was brought up in Buckinghamshire and Merseyside, and now lives in Scotland. She is married with one child.
