15 children’s books by the writer

Gill Harvey studied French and Philosophy at Oxford, and has been puzzling over life ever since. She became a writer/editor at Usborne Publishing then decided to go freelance and writing has become a way of life. Her love of horses has resulted in eight of the Heartland titles for Scholastic Inc under the name of Lauren Brooke; she has also written for the Young Animal Ark series as Lucy Daniels. A year spent commuting to Egypt led to the writing of Orphan of the Sun, Gill's first book for Bloomsbury, and subsequently to the Egyptian Chronicles series.
