Lis Jardine

Lis Jardine


Lis Jardine grew up in various vicarages across London and the Black Country. She has been a lifelong reading addict and is rarely spotted in the wild without a book, usually a Golden Age murder mystery or a comic fantasy. 

She currently lives in Cheshire with her husband and nearly-grown daughters, where she combines the two best jobs in the world: secondary school librarian and children’s novelist.

Lis studied English Literature at the University of Warwick and completed the MA in Writing for Young People at Bath Spa University. She has not won any prizes since a General Knowledge quiz at primary school.

In her spare time, Lis likes to watch TV, learn Norwegian (1300 day Duo streak!) and invent unlikely vegan sandwich recipes.
