Jennifer Bell

Londoner Jennifer Bell began working in childrens books as a specialist bookseller at Foyles, Charing Cross Road one of the worlds most famous bookstores. Here, she looked after the shops five not-so-deadly piranha fish as well as recommending childrens books to celebrities, royalty and even astronauts. After having the privilege of listening to children talk about their favourite books for many years, she started writing one of her own. Jennifer came up for the idea of The Crooked Sixpence while packing for a holiday and wishing she could just disappear inside her suitcase and be there already. The world of Lundinor is inspired by sayings from traditional English nursery rhymes as well as the stories Jennifer grew up with about the Cockney markets her grandparents used to visit.
