About Andrea Gallagher:

After more than 15 years of working as a writer in the corporate world, Andrea Gallagher has written two picture books, Superstar Grandmas, and Mega-rad Grandads. Her inspiration was to write about modern grandparents in a way that redressed old-fashioned stereotypes. Creating fun rhymes about real-life grandparents from her own world: using a perspective that kids could enjoy and learn from, packaged into vibrant books that adults would enjoy sharing.

Through her workshops, Andrea enjoys helping primary-school aged children to put their own grandparents into the 'Superstar Grandma' and 'Mega-rad Grandad' frame, as they develop their literacy skills.
