Linda Chapman and Lee Weatherly collaborate on new series

19th July 2010

Two bestselling children's authors are to collaborate on a new action series for girls.

Writing under the pen name 'L.A. Peters', Linda Chapman and Lee Weatherly will launch a series following the adventures of aspiring stuntwoman Sophie, who has to battle creatures from the mysterious Shadow Woods world.

The first book in the series is entitled Sophie and the Shadow Woods: The Goblin King and will be published by HarperCollins Children's Books in May 2011.

Harriet Wilson, editorial director at the publisher, said Chapman and Weatherly have formed a 'dynamic' writing partnership that understands the minds of young readers.

'It's incredibly refreshing to find strong young fiction for girls that isn't pink and sparkly. Sophie and the Shadow Woods stands apart from everything else, bringing some much-needed action and adventure to this area of the market,' she added.

Chapman has written more than 120 books, such as Starlight Surprise, Magic in the Air and First Class Friends. Weatherly, on the other hand, won the Sheffield Children's Book Award 2003 for Child X, while her other works include Breakfast at Sadie's and Kat Got Your Tongue.
