Brenda Gillam (aka Crazy Grandma)

Born in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, Brenda-Gillian grew up in Cherry Hinton until the age of 8 when the family moved to Wantage in Oxfordshire. She published her first book Maiseerola and the Purple Sweets in 2014, followed by Alfie Bear in 2017 and Thomas and Del Boy go to Mars in  2018. The three books are each dedicated to her grandchildren Amelia-Rose, Alfie and Thomas. She considers herself to be a ‘teller of stories’ having spent many years coaxing her grandchildren to go to sleep! Brenda-Gillian works at Hinchingbrooke Business Park as a Finance Manager and in her spare time she enjoys painting and drawing, a passion which she shares with her grandchildren as well as walking and cycling around the local beauty spots.
