Creina Mansfield was born in Bristol in 1949. She studied literature at Cambridge and became a teacher of English at secondary school level. She lived in Dublin for a number of years and is now living in Macclesfield, Cheshire, England with her husband and two teenage sons.

Her first book, Fairchild was published in Hong Kong. Cherokee, Creina's first book with The O'Brien Press, was published in 1994, followed by My Nasty Neighbours in 1995.

Her last books are It Wasn't Me, the story of how Jack deals with the school bully, and Snip Snip for younger readers. Creina's writing has been praised as 'original and compulsive' by Books Ireland and her books have been very favourably reviewed.

Enchanting and beautifully illustrated.

A good way to instruct your 5-plus-year-old about being careful with the scissors. Maeve Kelly's drawings add to the fun.
