Francesca Armour-Chelu is a Suffolk-based author and librarian who grew up by the Suffolk coast. Her experience of living on water meadows in an abandoned Edwardian railway carriage inspired her debut novel Fenn Halflin and the Fearzero. The sequel, Fenn Halflin and the Seaborn won the Mal Peet Children’s Award at the East Anglian Book Awards. Her latest book, The Butterfly Circus, came out in June.
