Fay Evans

Hello! I’m an author of rhyming stories for fabulously illustrated books aimed at children aged from around two to eight years (pre-school to Year 3). I write fun tales for children and grown ups to enjoy reading together, at bedtime or anytime.

My love of writing started at the age of eight, when I won a prize at primary school for my joined-up handwriting. I then wrote a diary every day for over ten years, telling the everyday story of my school and teenage life.

My first proper job was as a reporter for a local newspaper. I spent most of my career working in the PR industry, writing news stories and content for websites. Over the years I’ve written scripts for short films and sitcoms, as well as ideas for TV comedy dramas.

My daughter inspired me to start writing stories for children. She loved picture books from an early age and it was her favourite character that inspired her to say her very first word: “Bear!”

Snuggling up with my daughter every day to read books in those early years was magical. Reading together had a hugely positive impact on her development, her continuing love of books and our close relationship.

As an author, I love sharing my stories with children and seeing how my books spark their imaginations. What’s most important for me is inspiring young readers and writers through language, literacy, learning and laughter.

I am proud to be part of Team Author UK, which provides authors with a whole host of publishing support. I am also thrilled to have joined the family at Authors Abroad, an organisation that works with over 5,000 UK schools and over 800 international schools in 65 countries.
