David and Helen Orme

Both being writers is really useful - we can help each other out when we get stuck! Sometimes we write books separately, and sometimes we work together on them. Most of the time this works out well, but sometimes things can go wrong. We once wrote an A – Z book. One of us wrote the entries for A – M and the other wrote the entries for O – Z. Have you spotted what we did wrong? We forgot N! Luckily when the book was published no-one noticed!

We both write stories and non-fiction books.  You don't have to be an expert to write non-fiction – you just have to be good at research. We've written on all sorts of subjects, including some really fun ones like vampires and how to be a pop star!

When we're not writing we like walking and exploring new places, especially in other countries like Italy and Spain. We like collecting recipes then trying to cook them when we got home. Here's Helen in Italy about to eat a delicious Pizza!
