About Me

My name is Jean Webster and I am a children's author.
I loved being a primary school teacher and I'm still passionate about books, reading and the importance of libraries. I believe that reading is ‘a friend for life’ and that reading can change lives.
A sense of place is at the heart of my stories. I believe that humour plays a large part in engaging children and hope that my books are fun and full of surprises.

I once danced as a hedge in Helston’s Flora Day celebrations. When not writing stories I practise yoga, love baking cakes and I'm not afraid to wear purple tights. If I wasn’t a writer my dream job would be showing children the amazing paintings in The National Gallery.

My first children’s book 'No Hens in the Pen' has been recently published and I read it at Portishead Library which was great fun.
I also read my book to the children at Avonmouth Primary School where I was accompanied by two tractors driven by Ken and Liz Rees-Teucher.

I now work as a Writer / Artist in school. My current projects are a second book set at the seaside, two stories about hens and an allotment and a play for radio.
I have also been published in The Bristol Evening Post, The Rugby Advertiser, The Times Educational Supplement, The Western Daily Press, The West Briton and The Helston Packet.
