ZoŽ Marriott

My full name is ZoŽ Davina Marriott and I was born on a rainy day in April twenty-five (God, I'm oooold!) years ago. I've known that I wanted to be a writer since I finished reading my first book; 'The Magic Faraway Tree' by Enid Blyton. I think I was about eight, but I've never changed my mind in all the years since then.

My favourite film is 'Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring' and my favourite colour is green. I can't name a favourite book - there are far too many that I love. I'm blonde with green eyes, but I inherited my grandmother's redhead skin, which means that I don't tan at all, only burn (though I have some freckles on my nose, which I'm quite proud of). I live in a little house by the sea, with my two rescued cats, one called Hero after a Shakespearian character and one Echo after a nymph from a Greek myth.

I also have a new springer/cocker spaniel puppy called Finbar (otherwise known as The Devil Hound). There's a picture of him below.

I work four days a week as a civil servant to pay the bills, but I consider writing to be my real job (sorry boss!).

My fantasy for young adults,The Swan Kingdom, which is based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale 'The Wild Swans', was released by Walker Books in March 2007 in the UK and will come out from Walker Books Australia in May 2007.
