Franzeska G Ewart has written over 25 books, mainly for children. She was born in Galloway in the South West of Scotland and studied Zoology at Glasgow University. She taught English as an Additional Language in a Glasgow Primary School and most of her children’s characters are drawn from these teaching days.
She now lives in the Renfrewshire village of Lochwinnoch and is currently working on further books in her series for Frances Lincoln about Yosser Farooq and her friend Kylie Teasdale. The second book in the series, There’s a Hamster in my Pocket was chosen for Richard and Judy’s Summer Book Club and is shortlisted for a Scottish Children’s Book Award.
