About me

I am the author of Magic Marmalade and Lottie Sparkles' Magical Discovery.

I love everything sparkly, glittery, magical and mysterious.

Aside from all the glitz and glamour, I am a collector of books, pens, tea-sets and a huge fan of chocolate.

Since I was a little girl I wanted to write magical stories, the more magical the better.

I have two little girls, also known as “The Little Book-Fairies." They would not leave the house without a book in their arms. A little secret, they are excellent magical advisers.

I grew up in the Czech Republic, and when I was a young adult I moved to England to study film and postproduction. I also lived in Australia for 10 long years! Actually, my little family is 3/4 Australian, if you must know. 

I speak a fair few languages but the English language is my most favourite!

I am a huge fan of Laura Allen Anderson ( Amelia Fang series, Harriet Muncaster ( Isadora Moon series) Lindsey Kelk ( Cinders and Sparks series, Abi Elphinstone (Rumblestar, Jungle Drop), Sophie Kinsella ( Mummy Fairy and Me series), Sarah McIntyre ( Grumpycorn) and many more!

I am a huge bookworm and have more books than I can read!

Most days, I find myself conjuring up stories for children or reading books in my favourite spot – by the window.

Have a sparkly day!

Love Petra xo
