Gita Ralleigh has completed a diploma in Children's Literature as well as an MA in Creative Writing at Birkbeck College, University of London with distinction. She is a trustee of literary charity Spread the Word.
She has published work in Wasafiri and the Bellevue Literary Review as well as in anthologies by Fox Spirit, Freight (forthcoming), the Emma Press and the Word Factory.
She works as a consultant in the NHS and has two lovely children. They inspired her to set up a children's book group where she can talk to people who love children's literature as much as she does.
She is now writing a novel for children, a steampunk fantasy set in an alternate colonial India in which mechanical elephants feature.
