A former winner of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, Sita Brahmachari spent the day with some of our year 10 students recently.
She began her career in community theatre and has worked extensively in theatre education but three years ago she decided to turn her hand to writing for young people.
It was an impressive start as she won the Waterstone’s prize in 2011 for her first novel Artichoke Hearts. She followed this with Jasmine Skies, inspired by a visit to India with her family when she was a child. Her latest book Kite Spirit was published earlier this month
