Non Pratt is the author of the acclaimed YA novels Trouble, Truth or Dare, Second Best Friend and Unboxed. Non spends her time, when not writing, speaking at conferences and literary festivals, and visiting schools to promote reading for pleasure and encouraging young people to develop their own creative confidence.
