Children's Laureate from 2013 to 2015, Malorie Blackman is the author of the multi-award-winning Noughts and Crosses series, which deals with issues of race and ethnic identity. She has written many books for children and teenagers, including Pig-Heart Boy, which was shortlisted for the CILIP Carnegie Medal and adapted into a BAFTA-winning television series.
