Aoife studied Modern History at Oxford University, got married and spent her twenties reproducing. She loves children’s books and her shelves are coming down with childhood favourites which her three offspring would definitely appreciate if only they would sit still long enough to listen.
Lately, Aoife has combined her lifelong interests in literature and writing with a more enforced recent interest in actual children, and her first children’s novel, Look After Me, is published by Andersen Press in February 2014. She is currently working on her second novel.
LOOK AFTER ME
‘But we don’t know the first thing about looking after babies.’
Phoebe’s mum and dad are foster parents, and they’re having a tough time. Her dad’s moved out for bit, and her little foster brothers are playing up. So when Phoebe and her brother Adam find a baby abandoned in their den, they decide to try and look after her themselves . . .
