Ali Sparkes began her writing career as a journalist before moving on to writing and performing comedy columns. She tried her hand at children’s fiction and not long after, the first novel in her bestselling Shapeshifter series was published.
With more than 40 books now published, Sparkes is renowned for her high comedy, interactive, energetic presentations. Her first stand-alone novel, Frozen In Time, won the prestigious Blue Peter Book of the Year Award in 2010. The final book in her most recent fantasy adventure series, Night Forever, reaches its heart-stopping conclusion at the top of Dubai's Burj Khalifa.
Sparkes lives in Hampshire, England with her husband and sons and a large, lively labradoodle called Willow.
