Trisha Lee grew up in Dursley, Gloucestershire where she was constantly getting into trouble for fidgeting and making up stories. This served her well in later life and she ended up with a theatre degree from Dartington College of Arts.
Spending several years on the cabaret circuit, she regularly supported John Cooper Clarke and Merseyside poet Adrian Henry.
She wrote Princesses, Dragons and Helicopter Stories about an approach to storytelling that she pioneered in the UK.The book is a bestseller and was shortlisted for the UKLA Academic Book of the Year 2016.
Trisha is passionate about creative education. She has worked with children all over the world, and their voices inspired her to write The Story Tap.
The Story Tap
Amelia Appleby lives her life through fantasy, just like her storytelling dad. But he’s dead, squashed by an enormous book of bedtime stories.
To keep her safe, Mum enrols Amelia at the Shaw Academy of Hard Facts, a school where fiction is banned, and facts make you dizzy. Amelia hasn’t been there long when she discovers the dreadful Story Tap and begins to unravel the truth behind the immaculately behaved children in their grey uniforms.
Caught in a dangerous adventure, Amelia has only the power of story, but is that enough to save everyone when time is running out?
