Dick King-Smith was 56 years old when his first book was published, yet he went on to write over 130 books in his lifetime. That’s a lot of animal tales! If you’re not sure where to start with the books of Britain’s best-loved animal storyteller, then who better to ask than King-Smith's great-granddaughter Josie Rogers.
Josie Rogers is the great granddaughter of Dick King-Smith. She was born in London but moved to the west coast of Scotland aged nine and has pretty much been there ever since. After a period working in France, she studied English literature and creative writing at the University of Glasgow. As a child, Josie much preferred books to pets and people. Now, though, her favourite activities involve her family and their dogs. She writes prose and poetry, some of which has been published in various anthologies. When she isn't writing or reading, she's generally making something, like bread or a silly joke. She currently works as an editor in Glasgow.
