Emily Bearn was born in London, and has been a journalist since the age of 20 when she joined the staff of Harpers & Queen magazine. She has subsequently worked for The Times and the Sunday Telegraph before becoming a freelance in 2005 following the birth of her daughter. The idea for the Tumtum and Nutmeg books was sparked one evening when, while feeding her baby in the kitchen, she saw two tiny mice scuttling across the floor, then disappearing behind the skirting next to the cooker. She started to wonder what sort of life the mice led behind the skirting board, and so Tumtum and Nutmeg came to life. She and her daughter live in Hammersmith, and still share their house with two (very helpful) mice.
Hidden in the broom cupboard of Rose Cottage is a tiny house. Shh, it s a secret. No one knows it s there . . .
This is the home of Tumtum and Nutmeg . . .
The Nutmouses enjoy a quiet life. As long as there is food on the table and a warm fire to take a nap in front of,
Tumtum and Nutmeg couldn t be happier. But somehow they get involved in all sorts of adventures with their boisterous friend, General Marchmouse from cruel Aunts to the Royal Mouse Army, and vicious rats to a troupe of pogoing ballerina mice, life is never dull.
