Jenny Downham


After I stopped wanting to be a ballerina (aged around seven) I felt as if there were only two choices of career for me – an actor or a writer. I was always reading, but I also loved performing. I was in all the school plays, but my favourite subject was creative writing. I went to university to study both drama and English, then I went to drama school, became an actor, but never stopped writing.
