Born in Wales in 1929, Betty Collins started writing at an early age. In the early 1960s she wrote her first children's book while living in Australia.
Since then Betty has written many more stories for children. Loved by many children, her stories achieved commercial success in the late 1990s with the publication of another story through an American publisher.
Embracing the 'digital age', Betty is a strong advocate against felling trees for printing books, so publishes only in eBook format. Even at 84 she is thrilled at the technology of modern day and is perfectly content to turn pages on the family iPad.
