Anne Clark Literary Agency

Dedicated to children's and YA authors

Pippa Goodhart took a Saturday job in Heffers Bookshop in Cambridge while she was still at school. Despite a History Degree and PGCE qualification, she went back to Heffers to work full-time in the Children’s Bookshop … and got happily sucked into the world of children’s books.  


She now lives back in the Cambridgeshire village where she grew up, with full-time husband, occasional grown children, and various animals in a house that her husband built.  She writes, but she also teaches those who want to write, and enjoys numerous school visits.


In just over 20 years Pippa has had over 90 books published: picture books, early readers, and middle grade novels.  Best known are her award winning picture book You Choose (illustrated by Nick Sharratt), and the Winnie the Witch storybooks which she writes under the fake name of Laura Owen.


Forthcoming books include: My Very Own Space (Flying Eye) and The Bottle of Happiness (Tiny Owl).
