Children's Author

Ridiculous rhyming retellings of local myths and legends that shaped Bury St Edmunds and East Anglia. This author is dyslexic and proud!

Two mottos I love

"Persevere and conquer."

"What would I do today if I wasn't scared."

"Sarah has loved listening to Forkbeard as a bedtime story"

Hatty, who is “dyslexic and proud”, writes her books to make learning more fun and memorable. Her first two books tell the stories surrounding the martyred King, turned Saint, Edmund of Bury Saint Edmunds in Suffolk.
