    The Authors

    Suzanne Horton has spent 20 years working in primary schools and has had experience teaching all year groups across the primary age phase. She worked as an Advanced Skills Teacher (AST) and as a Local Authority Literacy consultant whilst maintaining a teaching responsibility in school. She is currently subject leader for primary English at the University of Worcester and teaches on a range of postgraduate and undergraduate modules. She has recently been involved in the Lifelong Readers Project in cooperation with a number of European partners, funded with support from the European Commission.

    Branwen Bingle moved from primary teaching into initial teacher education in 2008. Her career path to date has been anything but straightforward: she has been a supply teacher and support assistant for Service Children's Education; a basic skills tutor working with adults in the military; a private day nursery teacher working with 3- and 4-year-olds; a secondary English teacher working across KS3 and 4, including the teaching of GCSE English; and a subject leader for English in two Worcestershire middle schools. In addition to her lecturing role, Branwen is currently working on doctoral research into children's literature and its potential influence on professional identity construction/aspiration.
