Louise Rennison was born in 1951 and grew up in Leeds, England and Wairakei, New Zealand. She studied performing arts at Brighton University, during which time she wrote and performed a one-woman autobiographical show, Stevie Wonder Felt My Face, about her experiences living in Notting Hill. The production won awards at the Edinburgh Festival and was adapted as a BBC television special. As a result of the show's success, she started writing a column entitled Dating Over 35 for a London newspaper and was eventually offered a book deal. Her first book, Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging, was published in 1999. This was the first book in the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series. The first two books in the series were adapted into a film entitled Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging. She also wrote the Misadventures of Tallulah Casey series. The first book in the series, Withering Tights, won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize in 2010 in the 7-14 category. She also wrote and performed two other stage shows entitled Bob Marley's Gardener Sold My Friend and Never Eat Anything Bigger Than Your Head. She died on February 29, 2016 at the age of 63.
