Michelle Robinson

Michelle Robinson is a children's author who grew up in Gloucestershire. She loved being in the countryside because there was always so much to notice, like weird coloured ladybirds and steaming piles of cow poo! When she was young she loved reading, making up stories and being silly. After her exams, she put my silliness to good use by going to university and getting a job as a copywriter.

Wychwood Literature Festival 2016: Michelle Robinson.

One of her first jobs was writing radio ads. She wrote over 6000 before getting bored and moving on to writing TV ads and websites. She soon got bored again and started writing stories in her spare time. Soon Michelle secured her first book deal in 2008 and has gone on to write over a dozen books.

Michelle will be reading from A Beginners Guide to Bear Spotting.
