About Abie Longstaff

Abie Longstaff is the eldest of six children and grew up in Australia, Hong Kong and France. She knows all about squabbling, chaos and bossing younger sisters around. So she logically began her career as a barrister. She started writing when her children were born. Her favourite childhood books were Hating Alison Ashley, A Little Princess, Maura's Angel and The Black Stallion and she sneakily reads them again sometimes. Abie lives in Hove with her family.

Fantastic launch for @FrancesHardinge last night (one of my favourite authors). The book looks so brilliant. She had me at the disclaimer 😂 #deeplight pic.twitter.com/KoOnKsrAUQ
