Barbara Catchpole - författare
Barbara Catchpole was a teacher for over thirty years and spent a lot of time teaching Special Educational Needs and English as an Additional Language, and more or less anything else that was left over at the end of the timetabling!
Whilst spending a lot of time in schools Barbara's main interest is writing books for young people that are set in the real world and presenting characters that could be real teenagers. She tries to make them funny most of the time with just a little sadness thrown in because life's like that. She believes that adults can communicate really well with teenagers if the adult just makes a huge effort.
