About the Author
Born and brought up in Wales, Jennie Jones loved anything with a romantic element from an early age. At eighteen, she went to drama school in London then spent a number of years performing in British theatres, becoming someone else two hours, eight performances a week. Jennie wrote her first romance story at the age of twenty five whilst 'resting' (a theatrical term for 'out of work'). She wrote a western! But nobody wanted it. Before she got discouraged a musical theatre job came up and Jennie put writing to one side. She now lives in Western Australia, a five minute walk to the beach that she loves to look at but hardly ever goes to - too much sand. Jennie returned to writing four years ago. She says writing keeps her artistic nature dancing and her imagination bubbling. Like acting, she can't envisage a day when it will ever get boring.
Apart from a few years as a joiner, James has spent most of his working life in and around education. Many years were in informal education where he was a neighbourhood organiser. He has taught in schools and universities and was senior research fellow in the education department at the University of York. He has been deeply engaged in curriculum development and teacher training, especially in England and Russia. James' specialist areas are design, and education for a circular economy. Author of some 40 plus articles and books on education, he has been pondering what it all adds up to. With five children of his own, not to mention grandchildren and a great-granddaughter, the future of education is close to his heart. This book is born of reflecting on that experience.
