Working as both an illustrator and children’s author, the highly regarded British writer Georgia Byng has had a vast and extensive backlog of work published in her name, working in both television and film, where she’s also built a name for herself. Not just a writer and illustrator, though, she’s also worked as an actor and a producer, making her one of the most versatile talents working to date, with not just television productions behind her, but film as well. Bringing her own work to life on the big-screen, she knows exactly what each production needs to make it work and become a success.

Early and Personal Life

Born on the 6th of September in 1966, she was born and raised in Winchester in England where she harnessed a strong passion for literature from an early age. Growing up in Abbots Worthy in an area of Hampshire in the vicinity of Winchester, she took in ideas from her surrounding environment. Putting all of her experiences back into her writing, she was soon well on her way to becoming a writer with a distinctive voice.

Attending Westonbirt School in the Cotswold District of Gloucestershire in the United Kingdom, she went to an all girls independent school. Later she went to the Central School of Speech and Drama, based in Central London, which she soon graduated from. After this she went into acting, a job which she did for some time before finding herself as a full-time writer and illustrator.

Spending the years of 1989 to 1990, Georgia Byng was an actress, during which time she worked in a number of different television shows. These included Capstick’s Law, Dealers and Screen Two, all of which helped her to gain an in-depth knowledge of the visual medium. Later stepping into the world of publishing, she got her first work published in the form of comic-strips, along with her illustrations.

Marrying Daniel Chadwick between the years of 1990 to 1995, she had her daughter Tiger Rose, who was born in 1991. She later went on to marry her present husband the artist Marc Quinn, with whom she has two children called Lucas and Sky. Still writing to this day, she continues to put out her work, with plenty more titles to come on the horizon, as she shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.

Writing Career

Starting out in comic-strips and illustrations, Georgia Byng made her beginnings in the world of children’s literature through graphic design. It was her success as a writer, though, which lead her to give up acting and move into writing full-time, making a success of herself as an author. Bringing out her first Molly Moon book in 2001, she not only pushed her writing career forwards, but she also begun her best loved series to date.

Although Georgia Byng may be best known for her Molly Moon novels, she is known for a number of titles running throughout her writing career. The Molly Moon titles are perhaps her best novels known to date, though, given that they have also been subject to a big-screen adaptation. With over six titles in the series, it was also made into a 2015 film and brought out through Amber entertainment, being based on the first novel in the series.

Gaining a lot of recognition for her work over the years, she’s managed to garner not only commercial success, but critical acclaim as well. With not just her Molly Moon novels reaching a worldwide audience, but her many stand-alone novels as well, she has fast become a publishing sensation. Getting the status of being a best-selling author globally, she has reached a mass audience with her work appealing on a universal scale.

With a whole host of credits to her name, she has amassed a whole range of skills and titles throughout the years. Coming from a fairly literary family as well, she is also the half-sister to Archie Bland, the deputy editor of British newspaper ‘The Independent’. This puts her in good steed, as she continues to find an audience for her work, with more and more discovering her work everyday.

There’s still a lot more to come from Georgia Byng as an author, as she continues to write to this very day. Living with her husband and children in London, they all enjoy travelling and exploring new ideas, all of which she puts back into her work. With her writing career growing from strength-to-strength at a steady pace, it appears that she’ll carry on into the foreseeable future.

Molly Moon’s Incredible Book of Hypnotism

Originally published in 2002 on 13th of April, this was initially brought out through the HarperCollins publishing label. Perhaps one of her best known series to date, this was later adapted into a big-screen cinematic release, with Georgia Byng herself at the helm producing. Setting up the franchise, this particular title introduces its readers into the intriguing world of protagonist Molly Moon.

An orphan effectively left to fend for herself, as she faces a hard life at the Hardwick Orphanage, with the overbearing head Mrs. Ardwick. That’s when she discovers she actually has the power to hypnotize after finding a book on the subject, and goes about testing her new powers. This leads to all sorts of hijinks and adventures, as she and her friend Rocky find out the full extent of her powers. Will she be able to gain a full grasp on her powers? Can she ever hope of escaping the orphanage? What will become of them all as they discover the truth behind Molly Moon’s incredible book of hypnotism?

The Sock Monsters

Working as one of Georgia Byng’s very early entries into her backlog of children’s novels, this was first brought out on the 27th of November in 1995. Initially released through the Dolphin Paperbacks publishing label, it marks the beginnings of Byng’s career as an author. Laying out her style, it’s a must for any devotee of the now famous novelist, with it providing a clear insight into her development.

Tiger is a young girl who one day hears a noise in her room and, going to find the source, quickly discovers the Sock Monsters. They’re really frantic and all stressed out, though, as apparently one of them has eaten a jersey leaving them now feeling ill. Feeding them her old socks, Tiger keeps them in her room, but, after they scare off a burglar, her mother then finally allows them to stay properly. Will they become a part of the family? Can they come out of hiding? What will become of the Sock Monsters?
