Once upon a time Elizabeth Dale dreamed of being a writer, but maybe because the wicked fairy wasn’t invited to her christening, she was led astray into the strange, confusing world of studying for a physics degree and managing the health service. Finally she came to her senses and began her writing career labouring on a portable typewriter with keys that jammed, battling with re-writes, tippex and carbon paper to produce her big novel that no-one wanted to publish. Vowing never again to spend so much effort writing something nobody wanted to publish, she bought a computer and quickly progressed to writing teenage and adult magazine fiction, which both shared the same major attractions – they were much shorter and far more fun. After her three daughters were born, she was re-introduced to the amazing world of children’s books which, as well as being short and even more fun to write, came with the wonderful bonus of allowing her to stop pretending to be grown up and stay a child at heart.
Her three daughters have now grown up and all three - Katie Dale, Jenny Jinks and Caroline Walker are children's authors, too.
Elizabeth lives in rural West Sussex, where she sits with her laptop keeping her knees warm and looks out at the garden, letting her imagination run riot, exploring the child within and trying never to grow old.
She has had over 2000 stories (teenage and adult) published all over the world, and has had over 80 children's books published/commissioned. Her picture book Save The Day for Ada May has just won its third Award. She has recently ventured into writing non-fiction picture books, with her latest, Trailblazer, telling the inspiring true story of the battle for women to play football 100 years ago.
