Tessa Boase

Tessa grew up on the Ashdown Forest, Sussex, studied English at Oxford and Italian in Florence, and has worked for a variety of magazines and national newspapers including The Daily Telegraph. As a social historian, her interests lie in uncovering stories of invisible women from the 19th and early 20th-centuries. Her books shine a light in dark corners, and champion the unsung. She's currently running a statue campaign to commemorate Emily Williamson, forgotten RSPB founder of 1889. Four maquettes will be unveiled in Emily's garden in Didsbury on 1 July 2021 - the centenary of the Plumage Act. Follow the campaign and vote for your favourite at https://www.emilywilliamsonstatue.com/ Tessa lives on the Sussex coast with her family and sausage dog, Beano. During lockdown 2020 she collaborated with her daughter Dora to write a novel about a bad cat home. Really bad. Think 'James and the Giant Peach' meets '101 Dalmations' for the 21st-century. Stand by for 'Katnipp and Clink'... coming to Amazon soon, for the 9-12 yrs readership. https://tessaboase.com/
