Cindy Jefferies

Cindy Jefferies is a fresh and funny voice in children’s writing. She comes from a musical background, went to school with Cozy Powell, and was inspired to write Fame School by her involvement with her youngest son’s rock band, Stitch.

Cindy's varied career has included being a Venetian-mask maker and a video DJ. She decided to write Fame School after experiencing the ups and downs of her children, who have all been involved in the music business. Her insight into the lives of wannabe pop stars and her own musical background means that Cindy knows how exciting and demanding the quest for fame and fortune can be.

Cindy lives on a farm in Gloucestershire, where the animal noises, roaring tractors and rehearsals of her son’s indie-rock band, all help her write!
