Have you ever experienced rejection? It's not a pleasant feeling, but our guest for today has persevered despite being rejected by publishers 95 times. Join us this week as we discuss determination and dyslexia with Abi Elphinstone, the author of The Dream Snatcher Series and The Unmapped Chronicles.

Abi grew up in Scotland, spending her weekends building dens in the woods, hiding in treehouses, and exploring the highlands. Despite being labeled as "unteachable" and "prone to spasmodic outbursts of silliness" by her headteacher, she pushed through school and earned an English degree at Bristol University. After teaching English in Africa, Berkshire, and London, she now spends her time building dens and hiding in treehouses - both in reality and through her books.
