Louise Rennison lives in Brighton, a place that she likes to think of as the San Francisco of the south coast. Louise thinks this is sad as it is nothing like San Francisco, being mainly pebbles and large people in tiny swimming knickers who have gone bright red in the sun. Although she lives in Brighton in reality, in her mind she lives somewhere exotic with a manservant called Juan.
Louise is the author of the best-selling Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series for teens. Withering Tights is the first in her new series.
