Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.


Ariadne has an MA in children’s literature (Roehampton) and an MA with distinction in writing (Warwick). She writes for children and occasionally also for adults. Her first children’s book was published in 2008, and her third will be published in June 2009.

She reads mainly children’s and YA ficton, and less adult fiction and poetry than she would like to. She is also trying to educate herself by reading non-fiction on a variety of subjects (at the moment she is trying to understand the physics of time travel). A list of favourite authors might include: Alan Garner, Cormac McCarthy, Tove Jansson, T S Eliot, and of course all the great children’s writers she grew up reading.
