About Ali Sparkes

Ali Sparkes grew up in Southampton and despite some exciting months in London and even more exciting months in Lowestoft (where she really experienced life on the edge as a Pontin's Bluecoat), still lives in Southampton today, with her husband and two teenage sons. She has worked as a singer, journalist, broadcaster, magazine editor, and the spangle-clad assistant to a juggling unicyclist (frighteningly, there is photographic proof). Ali currently has 29 children's fiction titles published by Oxford University Press including her Shapeshifter series, her Blue Peter Award-winning novel Frozen in Time, and her heart-stopping new adventure series about a group of teenagers with special powers - Unleashed.
