Candy Gourlay is a Filipino author based in N19. Her debut novel TALL STORY is out in June in the UK and in the United States in early 2011. She was a journalist reporting about dictators in the third world before she took up a full-time position battling dictators of the nappy-clad variety. She inadvertently became a web designer while avoiding doing the dishes but now takes procrastination to new levels by blogging, drawing, writing and making YouTube videos for fun with her neighbours on Tavistock Terrace.

"It isn't often that I am in fits of laughter one minute and in tears the next - TALL STORY is one of the warmest, funniest, most moving books I've read in a long time - and Candy Gourlay is a rare and new voice in children's fiction." Bella Pearce, David Fickling Books (Random House)
