Jacqueline Wilson (1945) is an award-winning and best-selling English author, known for her vast and diverse work in children's literature. Over 30 million copies of her books have been sold in the UK alone. British children awarded her the title of their best loved author, while the Independent called her a »literary superstar«. Wilson always wanted to be a writer; she wrote her first book at the age of nine, she was a teenage journalist at the Jackie magazine, which was supposedly named after her, and afterwards she became a full-time writer. One of her most famous and earliest literary characters is a mischievous girl Tracy Beaker, who appeared for the first time in 1991 in The Story of Tracy Beaker. Wilson has won many prestigious awards for children’s literature. In 2008 she became Dame Jacqueline Wilson.

Wilson’s gripping book about two thirteen-year old girls, Secrets (2002) was adapted into a play in 2008 by Vicky Ireland, who had previously adapted five of Jacqueline Wilson’s books. Due to her stepfather’s violence and her mother’s indifference, Treasure escapes from home to live with her grandmother. She seeks solace in her diary. India lives in a well-off family. Her mother designs clothes for children and is obsessed with her work and her daughter’s weight. India does not get along well with her mother, but she used to adore her father, who is addicted to drink. She seeks solace in her journal, which she keeps in sincere imitation of her heroine, Anne Frank, and in which she can confide in her imaginary friend Kitty. A chance meeting sparks a great friendship between the girls in spite of their social differences. And when Treasure has to run away to avoid her abusive stepfather, India comes up with a hiding place inspired by her favourite author. India hasn’t got a real Secret Annexe in which Anne Frank had been hiding from the Nazis, but she has got a hidden attic. It is due to their big secret and a close friendship that the girls become firmly bonded.
