Marianne Levy

Before Marianne started writing, she was an actress. Not the famous sort, though. After graduating from Cambridge University she was in various TV shows, did some comedy on Radio 4 and made a brief appearance in the film Ali G In Da House, where she managed to forget both her lines.

She then worked as a continuity announcer for Living TV, introducing and getting obsessed with America’s Next Top Model. She’s been the voice of a leading brand of makeup, a shopping centre and a yoghurt. 

Marianne is the author of the Ellie May young fiction series for Egmont, and a regular contributor to The Independent on Sunday. She lives in London with her husband, daughter and a bad-tempered cat.
