Jean Ure wrote her first children's book at the age of 16 and has been a star in the firmament ever since. Her brand new series, Born to Dance (HarperCollins) and sequel Star Quality (HarperCollins), follows the futures of two dancers, Maddy and Caitlin, at the prestigious City Ballet School.

Jean lives with her husband and their large family of rescued cats and dogs in an old house, built circa 1690, in South London.

  • "Funny, funky, feisty – and fantastic reads." Jaqueline Wilson
