Welcome to the world of Jacqueline Wilson

Hi, everyone!  I’m Jacqueline Wilson, the author of The Story of Tracy Beaker, Hetty Feather, and more than a hundred other books. Welcome to my new home!

I expect you already love reading. I wonder if you like writing too? I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was six years old. I managed to get my first short story published when I was 17 – and I’ve earned my living by writing ever since. You’ll find some of my writing tips here.

You’ll also find all sorts of information if you’re doing a special project on me, and lots about my books. If you have a favourite title, you might like to see if there’s another in the same category.  There will also be photos of me (and my pets!) 

There’ll be quizzes too, and fun games. You’ll hear all the very latest news too!

I hope you enjoy the new site.

Love Jacqueline x
