Penelope's mother died when she was a young child and she was adopted by her mum's friend. On the surface her life seems as normal as anyone's and yet underneath she is confused. Why does she suffer such painful headaches, why does she remember things that can't possibly have happened to her?
Penelope Farmer was born in Kent, in 1939, the younger of twin girls. After boarding school and Oxford University she did a variety of jobs, from teaching to working as a filing clerk, followed by a year of social studies at London University. Then she settled down to raise a family and write full time- including nine novels and many other shorter stories for children, and five novels for adults. She cannot remember not writing; her first published stories were written when she was sixteen and still at school. She has two grown-up children, and lives in West London with her doctor husband and two cats.
