Dyan Sheldon is a hugely successful author with credits ranging from the internationally bestselling picture book The Whales' Song (Random House) to the New York Times bestselling Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, which became a major Disney film. In her new novel More Than One Way to be a Girl (Walker, 2017), when “girly girl” ZiZi swaps styles with black-clad best friend Loretta, the two friends learn what it really means to be a girl.

Dyan was born and raised in the US, and moved to London later in life. Among her passions are pumpkins, lizards, chilli peppers, yoga and Volkswagen Beetles.

  • "Sheldon has a brilliant ear for teenage diction ... her skills lie in her ability to inhabit the teenage perspective and to satirise without sneering." The  Daily Telegraph on More Than One Way to be a Girl
  • ‘Lola will rightfully take her place among the unforgettable and lively female characters of young adult novels. Like its heroine, the story is off-beat, outrageous and utterly charming.’ School Library Journal on Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.
  • 'Constantly funny, splendidly witty.' Kirkus on The Truth About my Success.
