Ali Sparkes


UK flag (b.1966)

Ali Sparkes is a journalist and broadcaster who can't help making stuff up. Fortunately she only makes stuff up in books, leaving her journalistic reputation intact. Ali, who lives in Southampton with her husband and two sons, has always loved adventure stories about kids who poke about in woods, about kids who are having a hard time but can still be brave and amazing, about kids who live an ordinary life until something extraordinary happens to them. Dax Jones is all of these and he's the hero of the new Shapeshifter Series, published by Oxford University Press.
