Pilar Gari has always loved children. When she was a teenager, she earned her first pocket money as a babysitter in England looking after three children...and learned her first three English words. Since then, she has enjoyed staying connected to children in many ways: as a shop assistant in a children’s bookshop, as a translator, as a writer, and of course, as a mother.
Pilar especially loves writing for children, whether it is stories, games, or recipes. She also enjoys writing nonfiction for children using simple words while providing accurate information. Her favorite topics are animals, science, and history.
Pilar’s 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 the USA. She is able to work on translations and do historical research in some of the most important libraries and archives of the world! Traveling has given her the great opportunity to meet children from different cultures, learn new languages, and remain open minded.
