Lynne Reid Banks was an actress in the early 1950s and later became one of the first two women TV News reporters in Britain. She is a bestselling author for both children and adults, and has written over forty books, including The Indian in the Cupboard, which was made into a major feature film, bestselling Harry the Poisonous Centipede and The L-Shaped Room. Lynne says writing for children comes more easily than writing for adults. "It's not that it is less demanding - I just find it more fun."
