Berlie Doherty


Berlie Doherty is the author of over 60 books for children and adults. When she was a girl, Berlie used to send her stories to the local newspaper, and at various times was paid in chocolates, paints, and fireworks. Berlie says, “It was wonderful to receive these presents and I thought it must always be like this for writers.” Berlie has twice won the Carnegie Medal for Granny Was a Buffer Girl and Dear Nobody, and is no longer paid in fireworks.
