About Rebecca Elliott
When Rebecca was six, she precociously pronounced that she wanted to be 'an artist and a writer'. After a ‘brief’ detour from this career plan involving wanting to be Stephen Fry, a degree in philosophy and a dull office job, she fulfilled her dream in 2001 when she became a full time children's book illustrator. Ultimately proving, if nothing else, that once her mind is made up she really can't be bothered to change it.
Since then she has become an award-winning and bestselling author of over 30 books for children, including her ongoing series Owl Diaries (Scholastic US) which has sold 6 million copies worldwide and upcoming YA novel 'Pretty Funny' (Penguin Random House).
If she's not story-making Rebecca can be found reading, podcasting with her comedian best friend, drumming or singing in her band, making something (normally a mess), or just hanging out in sunny Suffolk with her husband, gorgeous children, moronic chickens and sarcastic cat Bernard.
