Emma Kennedy writes things for the radio and the tellybox. She also does some dressing up and pretending to be other people on TV. Sometimes she wins prizes for these things, but her greatest achievement EVER was being the Runner-Up World Conker Champion. She would have won, but was let down by a soft nut. There are two things she would like to do before she dies. 1. She would like to fly a hot-air balloon. Proper fly it, not just stare out of it like a lemon. And 2. Grow wings. That's it. She has a most excellent beagle called Poppy, who can walk like a crab. Emma's favourite word is ramalamadingdong. She is the author of Wilma Tenderfoot and the Case of the Putrid Poison.
