Featured Author - Paige Toon

Paige Toon is one of my favourite authors - Her books are all chick soon as she releases a new book, i have to buy it and read it in one day. They suck me right in and I cant think of anything else apart from the book!

I first stumbled across her by accident a few years ago. She had just released her first book Lucy In The Sky and the front cover of it caught my eye whilst i wandered round Tesco's bored. I decided to take a gamble and im so glad i did! I sat down to read Lucy In The Sky and a few hours later i had finished - I couldn't put it down!!! Ive since bought every book she has released and i was lucky enough to get her latest book signed by her.
The thing i love about her books is that spread over all the books alot of the characters are linked - sometimes in a big way and sometimes it can be a subtle link that could easily be missed. I love spotting these links as it lets you have a little background knowledge on the characters in the stories.

Paige has gone on to release 12 books - 2 of them were short e-books (One Perfect Christmas and Johnny's Girl) and one of them a young adults book (The Accidental Life Of Jessie Jefferson) The follow on from Jessie Jefferson will be the next book to be released in July - I cant wait!
Her latest two books

One of Paiges books - One Perfect Summer - is even set in Dorset where I live! It was lovely seeing all the places I have visited, mentioned in the book.

Paige Toon grew up in Australia, UK and America following her dad round the world who was a racing driver. Paige worked on many magazines before ending up at Heat magazine as the reviews editor. She now lives in Cambridge with her husband and 2 young children.
