Dominique Valente is fairly certain she has that affliction where you grow younger the older you get, as the closest she ever came to being an adult was during a brief glitch in her twenties as a journalist for publications like Business Day and Woman& Home. Thankfully she came to her senses and now spends most of her days in her pyjamas, dreaming about grumpy monsters, quirky dragons, and magic. When the mood (or her deadline) strikes she also writes women fiction under her bestselling pseudonym, Lily Graham.
Born in South Africa, she now lives in Suffolk with her husband and their dog Frankie.
Her Starfell series is published with HarperCollins and her new book, Witchspark, publishes with Usborne in 2024.
