Cwen, a poor weaver struggling to make a living at Whitby Abbey, is accused of possessing a valuable necklace; if found guilty she could be hanged. Wulfrun, Cwen's daughter, sets out to prove her mother's innocence. Set in turbulent Anglo-Saxon times, this is the story of a resourceful dauntless heroine, determined and clever as the wolf that she is named for. In WOLF GIRL, Theresa Tomlinson links her enthusiasm for creating strong adventurous heroines, with her interest in history and mythology of the North East Coast of England.

Until recently Theresa Tomlinson and her husband lived in Sheffield but have now moved to Whitby where Theresa spent much of her childhood. They have three grown up children. Living within sight of the ruined Abbey has made this story of Wulfrun come vividly alive to her. Over the years Theresa has acquired an outstanding reputation for her historical novels. Shortlisted twice for the Carnegie Medal and twice runner up for the Sheffield Children's Book Award, she takes a keen interest in the north-east coast of England. Recent visits to Turkey have fuelled her enthusiasm for the ancient mythology of that part of the world. Her research has resulted in two epic stories - The Moon Riders and Voyage of the Snake Lady - in which classic tale and imaginative re-enactment make a stunning impact.
