About Natasha Farrant

Natasha Farrant previously worked in publishing and now runs her own children's literary scouting agency. She grew up in the heart of the French community in London, and has therefore never considered herself as completely English, although certainly not completely French, which makes for a quite interesting view of the world. Natasha is in her thirties, and lives in West London with her husband and two children.show more
