Author of fiction for adults and children

Welcome to the website of award-winning author Linda Newbery. Here you can read about publications, news and events, using the links.

The Blog, Between the Pages, features mainly reviews of fiction and non-fiction, with the occasional piece about work in progress or my backlist titles.

WRITERS REVIEW is a weekly blog hosted by Adele Geras, Celia Rees and myself, with help from a great many of our writer friends. We post a new book review every Monday - fiction, non-fiction and occasional poetry. Pieces are written by ourselves and by guests. Don't miss our two round-ups of reading recommendations from 2017, and follow WRITERS REVIEW on Twitter for regular updates. 


This year I'll have a new young adult novel out with David Fickling Books - more about that very soon. I'm completing work on it now and it will be published in July. 


Out now: UNTIL WE WIN, the struggle for Votes for Women, seen through the eyes of seventeen-year-old Lizzie. It's published by Barrington Stoke.



This website now includes a PHOTOGRAPHY page.
