Melanie Kendry was born in Yorkshire in a tiny village clinging to the edge of a windswept moor.
When working at McDonalds didn’t work out, she knuckled down and got a job at Railtrack, which promptly collapsed. She then studied English at Oxford and became a teacher. After a few years in a boarding school and monastery in North Yorkshire, she settled in Sussex, became a tutor and started blogging about GCSE English, gaining 1.6 million hits in just over a year at curvelearn.com.
Superfreak was written during a turbulent period, at six am, at midnight, in between working, blogging and looking after her three lovely children. The novel was finished in May 2014.

Superfreak - Bad Monkey
by Melanie Kendry
Eris and Frank's dad thinks the end of the world is coming, so naturally they're the school freaks. They lost their mum, so she can’t stop him.
In between catapulting, courgette cupcakes and Mustard the Slug, they start to wonder, does ‘lost’ mean dead? Is the end of the world real, or is it all in their dad’s head?
It is real. And they’re the ones who cause it.
