When she was only 7 years old, Indigo was the youngest winner of ‘The Tick-Tock Box’, a national short story competition at The Guardian newspaper judged by Francesca Simon, author of the Horrid Henry books.

Ever since then, she’s wanted to be a writer, and has even self-published a few stories for younger children!

Indigo lives in the rural South-West of England with her family and two cute cats called Bo and Jangles. Bo is apparently cuter than Jangles, but her mum says the opposite.
