Muddy Frank writes humorous children's middle grade books. She lives in a ski resort in France. 'I see the Mt Blanc from my balcony every day. I love it because I grew up in Australia by the beach, so this is so different. I like the food that comes with the alps lifestyle; the fondue, the steaks, the mulled wine. Before France, I lived in the UK. Love the London markets. I also lived in Spain. Love the jamon iberico. I'm a fan of the south of France too, can't get enough of the colour of the mediterranean sea. Anyway..., I travel, I observe and I stash away ideas in my head, and then I sit in my mountain pad, and I write.'
