Emily Bearn was born in London, and has been a journalist since the age of 20 when she joined the staff of Harpers & Queen magazine. She has subsequently worked for The Times and the Sunday Telegraph before becoming a freelance in 2005 following the birth of her daughter. The idea for the Tumtum and Nutmeg books was sparked one evening when, while feeding her baby in the kitchen, she saw two tiny mice scuttling across the floor, then disappearing behind the skirting next to the cooker. She started to wonder what sort of life the mice led behind the skirting board, and so Tumtum and Nutmeg came to life. She and her daughter live in Hammersmith, and still share their house with two (very helpful) mice.
Tumtum and Nutmeg are leaving the confines of Nutmouse Hall and voyaging on their most challenging adventure yet... at the seaside. Arthur and Lucy are going to stay with their Uncle, and Nutmeg is determined to keep an eye on the children while they are away. But of course they won't be alone as General Marchmouse decides to join the fun.
