About Kirsten Allen

Kirsten Allen is a freelance writer, poet and blogger from Leeds, now living in London with 2 children, a husband and a pet rhino called Raymond. She loves writing a variety of children’s books and poems and reading them to her harshest critics (her sons). When she’s not writing or trying to prevent her kamakazi 2 year old from climbing on…well anything and everything…Kirsten is blogging about children’s books, poems and children’s education at www.kidsstoryworld.com. She is very, very passionate about encouraging children to use their imagination and to love reading and creative writing.
