Janey Louise Jones was born in Edinburgh and brought up in East Lothian. She has been writing stories since she was seven. Her hugely popular Princess Poppy series has sold over two million copies to date and has been translated into several languages. Janey is married with three sons. An enthusiastic ballerina as a child, she still adores the world of ballet. She is the author of two other books in the Cloudberry Castle series: Cloudberry Castle and Ballerina Dreams.
'Jones, who lives in Scotland, offers ballet fans a chapter book with an unusual setting, an engaging story, and the promise of more adventures to come.' -- Booklist, American Library Association
