About Dominique Valente:

Dominique Valente is the author of the bestselling Starfell series, including Willow Moss and the Vanished Kingdom and Willow Moss and the Magic Thief. She is a lover of grumpy monsters, quirky dragons, misbehaving magic, gardens that whisper, and houses that breathe. She has one arm which is sometimes useful for getting out of doing the dishes, but only if it’s with strangers, as her family just don’t fall for it. Her disability, and her experience growing up with a difference, partly inspired the world of Starfell, and its unlikely heroine Willow Moss and Willow’s journey echoes Dominique’s own towards self-love and acceptance.

Originally from South Africa and in possession of a slightly weird accent, she lives in Suffolk with her husband, and their golden retriever, Frankie. Dominique writes in a green writing hut, which takes forever to warm up; a bit like her brain. And, while she’d love a hut on a cliff with a sea garden and a pet whale, she will settle for a cup of coffee, a slice of cake, and something good to read.
