Dinah Capparucci - authorDinah lives in East Sussex with her two children Leon and Maisy. She has worked as a sound engineer in a recording studio, as a financial adviser, and in a secure unit for young offenders. She began writing seriously in 2003. The main influences for her books are her experiences of working as a youth worker in rural villages and a childhood spent immersed in ‘boy books' such as the Just William series. Influences for characters also include her time in the Territorial Army and her husband, whose joinery firm, Rise Joinery, was nicked for the Warning series in the form of Jordan’s Dad’s firm, Rise Building Contractors. Until the age of nine she lived in Edinburgh and still annoys her family by listening to bagpipe CDs in the car.
