    About Eleanor Hawken


    1. Throughout school I kept a diary, wrote bad poetry, song lyrics and stories I wanted to grow up and be an actress, or a rock star, or maybe both It never occurred to me that I could be a writer Writers were good at spelling and had neat handwriting.After school I went to Kings College London and did a degree in philosophy I worked little and played hard, somehow I still passed It was around then that I realised I wanted to become a writer I was at a party telling a friend about a book I d been reading Seriously, I said The Northern Lights is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G Philip Pullman has created a masterpiece if I could write something like that then I d die happy And then it hit me, like a thunder bolt That s what I had to do with my life, I had to become a writer.After university I headed home which was now in Canterbury and pretended to still be a student whilst trying to write stories One day my mother confronted me Mum You should get a proper job Me But I don t know what to do Mum What do you like Me Books So I moved back to London and started working in publishing Children s publishing I then moved to the beautiful city of Bath to work for Parragon Books as a writer and editor on their Disney team It was at Parragon that the idea for Will Solvit came about and the kind people at Parragon let me write my crazy idea down and it became a book and that book became a series As Will Solvit was launched into the world, I was put in touch with the lovely people at the Miles Stott Children s Literary Agency And they agreed to help me get some of my other stories published By this point I d had an idea for a book about a boy whose family owned a zoo Except I didn t want to write about normal zoo animals like lions and tigers and bears, I wanted to write about weird animals Animals that people believe don t actually exist animals like werewolves, phoenixes, death worms and yetis.After my first Sammy Feral book was written, I decided to quit my job in Bath, leave my lovely flat and my friends behind and board a plane with my boyfriend, Luke, to travel the lengths of the Americas Some friends of mine had kindly leant me a small laptop to travel with, and it was during my travels that I wrote The Blue Lady I wrote in beach side cafes, jungle huts, tropical islands, dusty cities and ancient ruins We were in Itacare in Brazil when I had an email from my agent telling me that Quercus Children s Books wanted to publish Sammy Feral s Diaries of Weird After we returned home from our adventure of a lifetime, we moved back to London and both got jobs Luke found a job that allows him to wear a fancy suit and tell people what to do all day, and I found an awesome job as a part time fiction editor for Simon and Schuster Children s Books, which is great as it still gives me time to write Within a year of being back on English soil, The Blue Lady was signed by Hot Key Books and Quercus signed another two Sammy Feral books So I had a busy year in 2012 trying to get everything written And at the end of 2012, Luke who I travelled the world with and has supported me every step of the way on my rocky quest to become an author became my husband Luke and I still live in London, he still wears a suit and tells people what to do, and I work part time editing other people s books whilst writing my own I m currently working on a follow up book to The Blue Lady It will be another ghost story, and I love every minute of writing it excerpted from her website

    1. I really enjoyed this, although it didn t scare me as much as I d like I don t scare easily though so bleh I liked the romance in it, though I think I d prefer if it the romance was the side story, and it to have focussed on the ghostly aspect That being said, I m interested in the sequel, and at some point would like to pick it up.Enjoyability 3.5 5

    3. The Blue Lady begins with Frankie s arrival St Mark s College an uppity boarding school with a history of disappearing students Not that Frankie knows this as the start.To begin with she is in the process of becoming the real Frankie Having moved schools so many times she is fed up with blending in and wants to be herself The reason I pick up on this is because Frankie might begin with this intention but as she becomes friends with Suzy she does what Suzy wants, she thinks what Suzy thinks.The b [...]

    4. If you are a boarding school setting fan then look no further I absolutely loved this book When I picked it up I had to think twice about it I thought its for middle grade audience but when I read it I had to change my opinion It had the right amount of romance not too much which is great I think It focused on the ghost aspect and that s why I adored this book so much Most of the book is based on the ghost plot and friendship which makes it an absolutely amazing read and therefore I would recom [...]

    5. the mystery element was great but the characters were pretty weak with really weird logic and fights that made no sense the main character started off ok but then just wasn t likable and really selfish so it kinda ruined the story give it 3 stars because the ghost story aspect was really good
