Pilar has always loved children. When she was a teenager, she earned her first pocket money looking after three of them and learned her first English words as a babysitter, in England. Since then she has been linked to childhood in many ways: as a shop assistant in a children’s bookshop, as a translator, as a writer and, of course, as a mother. She really loves writing for kids: stories, recipes, games… and also texts about animals, science or history always using simple words while providing verified and accurate information.
Her other professional passion is research. She is originally from Spain but freelancing has given her the chance to spend long periods of time in other countries such as France, England or USA, working on her translations and doing historical research in some of the most important libraries and archives of the world. Traveling has given her the great opportunity to meet children of different cultures, learn new languages and stay open minded.
