Dame Jacqueline Wilson

Dame Jacqueline Wilson, former Children’s Laureate, has written over 100 novels for children and 2016 marks the 25th anniversary of her perennially popular character Tracy Beaker. We are thrilled to welcome Dame Jacqueline to Hertford for the launch of HCBF 2016
As a teenager she started work for a magazine publishing company and then went on to work as a journalist on Jackie magazine (which she was told was named after her!) before turning to writing novels full-time.
Jacqueline is one of the nation’s favourite authors, and her books are loved and cherished by young readers not only in the UK but all over the world. She has sold millions of books and in the UK alone the total now stands at over 35 million!
