Holly Webb was born and grew up in south-east London, but spent a lot of time on the Suffolk coast. As a child, she had two dogs, a cat, and at one point, nine gerbils (an accident!). At about ten, Holly fell in love with stories from Ancient Greek myths, which led to studying Latin and Greek and eventually to reading Classics at university. She worked for five years as a children's fiction editor, before deciding that writing was more fun and easier to do from a sofa. Now living in Reading with her husband, three young sons and one cat, Holly runs a Girl Guide group. The Rose and Lily books stem from a childhood love of historical novels and the wish that animals really could talk.
