Tamsin Winter grew up in a tiny Northamptonshire village where she spent her childhood reading books and writing stories. She studied English literature and creative writing at university, and has taught English at secondary level for over fifteen years. Her multi-award-winning debut novel aimed at young teens, Being Miss Nobody, is published by Usborne Publishing and tells the story of an eleven-year-old girl who can’t speak. Her second novel, Jemima Small Versus the Universe, is also aimed at young teens and has been described as “a triumph of body positivity” by the Bookseller. It deals with big themes of weight-related bullying, body confidence and learning to be happy with who you are. Tamsin is currently working on her third novel, forthcoming from Usborne.
