About Me


Hi, I’m Jennifer Gray. I write comedy for kids, including the Atticus Claw and Guinea Pigs Online series, which I co-wrote with Amanda Swift. (And this is Henry, pictured, the inspiration for the cat-tastic Atticus.)

I started writing about 15 years ago, but didn’t get my first book published until May 2012. Luckily writing is like swimming or playing the recorder – you get better at it if you practise.

Now the tabby with talent is on his seventh adventure and the guinea pigs are on their sixth. Meanwhile I have also written Chicken Mission and (with Amanda) Puppies Online. My latest series, The Travels of Ermine is OUT NOW!! As my dad would say it just shows what you can achieve if you persevere!
