Description

Autobiography of Malorie Blackman

Malorie Blackman Malorie was born on the 8 th February 1962 in England, Merton , Surrey.

Childhood When Malorie was a child she loved books and she read at every possible opportunity. She did very well at school in all subjects but best of all in English. Malorie enjoyed riding her bike, playing tennis, rounders and had many friends.

Teenage Years Malorie’s world changed dramatically when she was thirteen. Her mother was in tears because her beloved father had left to live somewhere else. When Malorie was 17 she sadly received some very bad advice. The careers teacher refused to write her a good reference to study English at university but instead advised her to take business studies.

illness Malorie loved living away from home but hated her business studies course. One late evening she felt unwell and had stomach pains. Somebody rang up the ambulance and Malorie was brought to hospital. The doctors thought she had appendicitis and she was taken into the theatre immediately and had her appendix removed but actually she had sickle cell disorder.

World of Work Malorie decided not to return to her business studies course and got a place at Goldsmith’s collage in London to study English. She got a job with a computer software company. Malorie was wondering through the children’s section of a large shop. Malorie wanted to write her own stories. It was important to Malorie that her stories had black characters. When she had been growing up none of the stories she had read had characters were like her.
