Lily and the Traitors' Spell (#4)
Holly Webb was born and grew up in south-east London, but spent a lot of time on the Suffolk coast. 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. The Rose and Lily books stem from Holly's childhood love of historical novels, and the wish that animals really could talk.
