Amelia used to email stories to her daughter, ‘stories of her very own’, which started her daughter reading, and sowed the seeds of an idea for a reading app.
She was born in the UK and has lived in Belgium, France, Chile, England, Scotland and Wales, and has enjoyed the stories she found in all of those places. She studied at Edinburgh University. She has recently finished ‘The House of Clocks’
, a children’s novel, a second volume of which is under way. She has developed Doctor Dan, for younger children together with animator AnneMarie Walsh, and is currently writing a screenplay for a children’s film. She has had a mish-mash of completely unrelated jobs including teaching at a school and running the office of a nursery. She was a chef at Christie’s for a while and ended up as PA to the Managing Director (which all goes to show that food will get you everywhere). She is a director of her husband’s company and keeps the admin ticking along. She lives in London with her husband and two children. The original Mr Glue contributor, Amelia wrote the first stories for the Mr Glue App.
