Pamela Butchart

Pamela Butchart is an award-winning children’s author, secondary school philosophy teacher and mummy. As a child, Pamela was lucky enough to grow up in a house full of pets and go to a primary school where lots of weird and spooky things happened (well, in her imagination at least). Her top-selling stories include The Spy Who Loved School Dinners which won the Blue Peter Best Story Award and My Head Teacher is a Vampire Rat which won The Children’s Book Award. Pamela lives in Dundee with her son, Albie, and their two cats, Bear & Carlos. If she wasn’t working as a writer and a teacher she’d like to open a luxury hotel for stray cats.
