Who is Angelica Banks?

Angelica Banks is not one writer but two. Danielle Wood and Heather Rose are both award-winning authors and they have been friends for years. When they decided to write a book together they chose a pen name to make things easy. That first book – Finding Serendipity – was the first in what has become the acclaimed Tuesday McGillycuddy  series for primary age readers aged 7 – 12. The sequel to Finding Serendipity is A Week Without Tuesday. Book 3 is Blueberry Pancakes Forever. They star a girl called Tuesday McGillycuddy, a heroine called Vivienne Small, and a dog called Baxterr and they take readers on vivid adventures into the magical world of imagination and writing. The Tuesday McGillycuddy series is published in Australia by Allen & Unwin, in Germany by Magellan and in the USA by Henry Holt (Macmillan). A Week Without Tuesday and Blueberry Pancakes Forever we both shortlisted for the Australian Aurealis Awards for Best Children’s Novel in 2015 and 2016. Following the success of the Tuesday series, Danielle and Heather are now embarking (as Angelica Banks) on a new series of seven books. More news on that soon!

We’d love to hear from you
