Helen Bryant - School Library Service Manager, Hampshire County Council

As a librarian of longer standing than I care to remember, I have always been passionate about the written word and in particular with engaging young people through reading and writing. For the last few years I have been a volunteer judge on the BBC's 500 words writing competition.

One of my favourite children's authors is Jonathan Stroud, but at the moment I am reading Frank Cottrell-Boyce's "The Astounding Broccoli Boy" and enjoying it very much.
