Vix J Cooper


Living close to the M25 and railway, I like both busy places and the countryside. I don’t mind that my hair is going grey but hope my earlobes have stopped growing! Over the years I have taught in schools and a museum as well as ran Forest School. I love experimental history and archaeology, and get ridiculously excited about poo and bones because they can hold information. I enjoy traditional crafts such as woodcarving, bow and rope making.


 My pets have included a crazy hen (hmm, there’s definitely a story to write about her!), and a rescued racing pigeon who I thought was a boy but turned out to be a girl. I truly do have a pet that’s featured in my book Crazy Pets & Secrets Revealed – he’s also a great window cleaner.


My idea of a good time varies from spending time with family, and friends including woolly ones (sheep); coaxing silly goats back into their pen; bird watching and night searches for glow worms, to going to the cinema and of course writing.


I can be serious, or silly to my husband and twin teenage daughters’ dismay. My motto for life is: I try, I try. I can, I can.
