Jenny Valentine working on new teen novels

13th April 2010

Jenny Valentine is to publish another two new teenage novels and relaunch her backlist, HarperCollins Children's Books has revealed.

HarperCollins has been the home of Valentine since she published 2007 debut novel Finding Violet Park, which won the Guardian children's fiction prize.

The author, whose other books include Broken Soup and The Ant Colony, will publish the first of the new novels in summer of 2011.

Her teen backlist will be relauched in August with new cover designs to coincide with the publication of forthcoming works The Double Life of Cassiel Roadnight and Iggy & Me on Holiday.

Rachel Denwood, publishing director at HarperCollins Children's Books, commented: '[Valentine] is a true original, an incredibly gifted writer whose books always connect with the reader in the most powerful way. At HarperCollins, there is a fantastically strong collective passion for Jenny's work.'

Last week, HarperCollins revealed that it has acquired the rights to fantasy trilogy The Emerald Atlas by debut author John Stephens.
