RANDA ABDEL-FATTAH loves writing - she means LOVES it! She always wanted to be a writer and wrote her first book when she was in grade six. It was a complete rip-off of Matilda written by her hero Roald Dahl. It was called Ronald and she even traced Quentin Blake’s illustrations (she's sure he would have been very cross to know that). She managed to find her own voice since stealing ideas from Roald Dahl and has written eight books, including Does My Head Look Big in This?, The Friendship Matchmaker and the sequel, The Friendship Matchmaker Goes Undercover. Because she has a big mouth, she is also a lawyer. That means she gets to go to work and collect ideas and inspiration from all kinds of funny and sad people she meets. She lives in Sydney with her husband and two children.
