Jacqueline Wilson Career

When Wilson began to focus on writing, she completed several crime fiction novels before dedicating herself to children's books. At the age of 40, she took A-level English and earned a grade A. She had mixed success with about 40 books before the breakthrough to fame in 1991 with The Story of Tracy Beaker, published by Doubleday.

As her children's novels frequently feature themes of adoption, divorce and mental illness, they tend to attract controversy, yet are well loved by children and adults alike.

In June 2013, Wilson was appointed a professorial fellow of the University of Roehampton, and a Pro-Chancellor. In February 2014, it was announced that she would be appointed Chancellor of the university (its honorary figurehead) from August 2014. She was reappointed in 2017 for a further three years. She teaches modules in both the Children's Literature and Creative Writing master's degree (MA) programmes offered by the university. She concluded her term as Chancellor in August 2020.

Wilson is patron of the charity Momentum in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey, which helps Surrey children undergoing treatment for cancer (and their families), and also a patron of the Letterbox Club, a BookTrust initiative. Until she moved away from Kingston-upon-Thames she was a patron of the Friends of Richmond Park.


EPHRAIM HARDCASTLE: The pummelling of Prince Andrew's wallet is hardly terminal

EPHRAIM HARDCASTLE: Granted a 75-year lease on Royal Lodge in 2003, Prince Andrew spent £7.5million of his own money on repairs and refurbishment. As a result, the Crown Estate waived any rent due for the entirety of his tenancy. And if he surrenders the lease before 2028, the Crown Estate is liable to reimburse him for his capital outlay on the Lodge.

Search for the young stars who refuse to be bowed by cancer

The Mail today helps to launch this year's Cancer Research UK Star Awards, which celebrate the courage of children diagnosed with cancer. The event highlights the extraordinary resilience shown by the 2,500 or so British under-18s who are diagnosed with the disease every year. Few of Connor Sunderland's swimming rivals know quite how tough the boy in the next lane is. For not only is Connor (picture left) pushing them every inch of the way in the pool - he's doing it having overcome cancer. Jaden Stewart (pictured right) has experienced more medical emergencies in his short life than most people endure in decades. Last year he received a Star Award for his bravery coping with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, which he was diagnosed with in June 2020.

WHAT BOOK would best-selling children's author Jacqueline Wilson take to a desert island?

Confessions: A Life Of Failed Promises by A. N. Wilson. I've been a fan of Wilson ever since I read his first novel. I love his non-fiction too, especially his brilliant book on Dickens. He's written briefly about his terrifying experiences at a sadistic prep school - and now in this fascinating, searingly honest memoir he tells more of his own life story. You see from the photograph on the back cover that his young fogey clothes and studious air were evident at a very early age! He might now be his own fiercest critic but is perhaps too modest to recount his little kindnesses. My daughter wrote him an earnest letter about his early novel The Healing Art when she was in her early tees. He was probably bombarded with fan mail but he took the trouble to write her a serious three-page letter, treating her with respect and kindness.
