Mandy Loader went to Paris to teach EFL soon after getting her first degree in English. Two years later she travelled across Siberia to Tokyo, where she taught for two years – and met her future husband. She then taught in Morocco for several years, during which time she did a lot of windsurfing, got an MA in Applied Linguistics and had her first child. Back in the UK, she settled down to raising her brood and freelance writing. She has written numerous language books and courses, but particularly enjoys writing readers. In a dull moment between projects, she qualified in Basic Skills and has taught ESOL and Adult Literacy in the UK, as well as providing training in the government-funded Skills for Life initiative.
In her free time Mandy loves sailing, gardening and travelling, preferably somewhere warm.
