Caryl Hart is a full-time children’s writer, who also runs creative workshops with local schools. She lives on the top of a windy hill in the Peak District with her guitar-playing husband, two cheeky daughters, one extremely fluffy black cat, a goldfish, four hens, and an invisible dog called Paddy. She spends her spare time digging her allotment and organizing community projects, and going for long walks, especially if they end up at a café. Her favorite place is the local library because it’s warm and full of books. Plunge into Pirate Pool is her fourth book for Simon & Schuster.
