Sally Gardner grew up in the Inns of Court, in the heart of London, where both her parents were lawyers.

After the birth of twin girls and a boy, she started first to illustrate and then to write books for children. Sally Gardner's first novel I, Coriander, won the Nestle 2005 Gold Award in its category. All her books are extremely popular and she has been called 'an idiosyncratic genius' by the Sunday Times.
