Serena grew up in the countryside in the south of England.
At school she adored art and drama
Her favourite parts were the Judge in Toad of Toad Hall, and the King in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
She likes to travel near and far and mix with different cultures. She sees new experiences as ways to grow as a person.
In between her globe-trotting, Serena loved the time she spent living in London. She spent many years studying and searching for her true passion. From west, to east, to south London she searched and explored and even spent some time as an intern at Hearst in New York.
One day in 2012, while sitting in the hot cobbled piazza of Covent Garden, she met a pigeon. Like an invisible creative force, the inspiration for her first book was born. She had discovered that her passion was writing and she has never looked back.
A few years later, Serena found a place to call home in Surrey, where she happily lives with her husband and two daughters. Her favourite hobbies are amateur face-painting, with sprinkles of glitter and sparkles (including her own face, of course) and dressing up in imaginative costumes with her children!
‘I believe life is magical and if that means dressing up as a fairy and a superhero at the same time and heading to the supermarket, then really … why not?’
