Debbie McKelvey is a journalist and author best known for writing the Space Seed Adventure series.
From her background in local newspapers Debbie has seen how often truth, really is stranger than fiction, and loves to use these uncanny stories as a basis for her books.
As a child, she found primary school a difficult and deflating experience and so is passionate about creating characters who inspire children to develop self-confidence and flourish. As a 'late bloomer', she relates well to the struggles children face trying to find their identity and for this reason loves to champion the underdog.
Despite championing underdogs though, she is in fact herself a cat lover and owner of a cheeky orange tom affectionately named Jasper Carrot and an incredibly lazy, incredibly fluffy, tabby who loves sleeping on top of the fish tank. She likes to try and include at least one cat in each book.
When not writing stories, Debbie is usually doing taxi runs for her teenage son, aspiring to be a domestic goddess, and ticking off bucket list goals with her best friend and husband, Kevin.
