Ronda Armitage was born in New Zealand but moved to England with her family in 1974. Her husband, David, illustrated most of her earlier books including the Lighthouse Keeper series but she now works with a number of other talented illustrators. She probably became a writer because she always loved reading. Her first job was teaching young children so she read many wonderful books to them.
Although she loves writing she often thinks of many other things to do before she begins work on a new book. A walk in the woods, some gardening, maybe ringing a friend. She is a procrastinator.
Finally with a little snack, preferably of grapes or mangoes she will open her computer and write.
