Valerie-Anne Baglietto wrote and illustrated her first book when she was four: pure fiction about a little boy whose mother’s nose was incredibly long and spiral-shaped. The writing bug had bitten!
In 2000 she won the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s New Writer’s Award for her first novel The Wrong Sort of Girl. After three more romantic comedies published by Hodder & Stoughton, life with her young family took over.
These days, Valerie-Anne writes contemporary adult fiction set in picture-book Welsh villages. They all have an element of magic, for good measure. Once Upon a Winter reached #1 in both the Contemporary Fantasy and Fairy Tale charts on Amazon UK.
She lives in North Wales with her husband, three children and a headful of plotlines.
