Hi there!

Welcome to my site. I am Tania Ingram – children’s author, wife and mother (although not always in that order). I was a child psychologist for a time but decided that writing stories was more fun. When I am not writing or reading children’s booksΒ  I spend my time making things – mostly toys.

Feel free to browse around and explore.

    From Scarlett

  7. Hi Tania,
    Your books are great I love them so much it blew my mind how I got so into it so fast at my school we read them as a class and everyone loves them. We are in the middle of the revenge of the stone witch I love it. Thanks for all the excitement you have put into my life in the library. From Hunter.

  8. Hi Tania,
    My friends are Hunter and Scarlett. Archie is also from my class. We have been reading the Jinny and Cooper books in our library lessons. Your books are filled with wonder, that make my believe that I am there with Jinny, Tyron and Cooper, of course. I am enjoying the library lessons much more than i usually do. I hope you are able to eventually come to school , and tell us your great ideas that made you write about Jinny and Cooper! I have a question, Tania. When you write the Jinny and Cooper books, what makes you write about a magical guinea pig that is obsessed with junk food?

    • Hi Jasmine
      Thanks for your lovely message. It sounds like your librarian is doing some fun things with you guys. It was my daughter who first asked me to write her a story about a magical guinea pig and I thought it would be fun if the guinea pig was a bit naughty and loved to eat junk food. ☺

  9. Hi Tania,i see you’ve met my friends Hunter and Jasmine. Just like they said.
    Thanks for giving us a magical library time. Like they said your books are full of wonder and excitement. My sister Sophie also loves these books two. Thanks for a magical library time.

    • Hi Scarlett
      I always wanted to be an author ever since I was a kid but I really started seriously writing after I had my daughter. I’d make up lots of stories for her and one day I decided to start writing them down. I sent them to a publisher and the rest is history.

  11. Hi Tania,
    I see you have met another class mate of mine, Sophie. We all are amazed and so happy about these great books. You may have met my librarian/ ESO Rebecca, or Becky. I have another question too. What are your Guinea pigs names?
    Jasmine πŸ˜Šβ€οΈπŸ’œ

    • Hi Jasmine
      We have two guinea pigs – a creamy golden coloured one called Humphrey and a black and brown one with fur that sticks up all over the placed called… you guessed it…COOPER!:) PS: Humphrey also makes an appearance in Book 3: Curse of the Genie’s Ring.

    • Hi Scarlett
      Thanks for your question but I promised my daughter that I wouldn’t share personal details about her (like her name) on the internet. It’s important for her to have some privacy separate from the crazy life I lead. I hope you understand.

    • Hi Sophie
      I was lucky enough to be brought up in a household full of books so I read a lot as a kid. I loved reading and I loved books. I think this inspired me to be an author when I grew up. Do you like to read?

  12. Hi Tania we just finished the revenge of the stone witch omg I loooved it!!!!!!!!

  14. Hi Tania,
    Thank you for giving me all of that infomation about you and your pets. I have a bird/parrot, a dog, a cat, a goldfish and a turtle. My birds always very cheeky and loves to squark at the top of her lungs. Have a great school holidays Tania!

  15. Hi Tania,
    i’m in year 3 and i get to see you next term I love you’re Jinny and Cooper books i’m up to the second book of Jinny and Cooper I’m asking my Mother today if I can go shopping for the Jinny and Cooper books both of them so I will see you next term

  16. Hi Tania,
    I just wanted to let you know I have rabbit called clover. He is like Cooper. He his naughty just like him.

  17. Hi Tania. Yesterday I got revenge of the stone witch. I have already finished it. It was awesome. I couldn’t believe X was the stone witch. She was so nice. I love your books.

    • Hi Scarlett
      My goodness! You are a quick reader. I’m glad you enjoyed Revenge of the Stone Witch as well. You’ve probably noticed that made a change to your comment so that it doesn’t give away the Stone Witch secret. Just in case someone who hadn’t read the book yet reads your comment. I hope that’s okay.

  18. Hi Tania!
    Me, my friends and my sister Emmaly, are soooo excited about you coming to visit our school, and my class. At the moment, I am ordering the Jinny and Cooper books, for you to sign when the day comes we both put our pocket money together to afford all of the books!! August the 28th feels like forever! I just wish that you could bring Humphery and Cooper! Cooper sounds like he’s sooo cheeky, but I am not sure about Humphery yet! By the way, in my library lessons we are one chapter away from completing the book 2. I can’t believe how X is the stone witch! It really shocked me when my friend told me! but I can’t believe how the trick Jinny into thinking how Cooper ate a carrot!
    Jasmine and Emmaly

    • Hi Jasmine and Emmaly
      I look forward to visiting your school and signing your books. I’ll bring a copy of the next two books so you can have a sneak peek at them.
      Although Humphrey is in book 3, the REAL Humphrey is even more cheeky and food obsessed than the real Cooper. But I love them both. ☺

  19. They both sound wonderful, but if we order the books when we get them? will it be on the 29th of August? or in September, I am a a bit confused on the releasing date? Do you know when we will eventually get them?

    • The 3rd and 4th books officially come out on the 29th of August, Jasmine but I’m not sure when you will get yours. I guess it depends who you order them through. Bookshops should have them in on the 29th but you might want to get your Mum or Dad to ring in advance to make sure your local bookshop will have them.

  20. Hey tania is Archie still very much in to you books I hear that you coming Into my school on the 23rd of August and when I’m older i want to be like you a writer i am so excited to see you at my school

    • Hi Archie
      Lovely to hear that you are still wanting to be a writer. I hope you are practicing lots. I’m looking forward to doing my school visits next month. Be sure to bring your books so I can sign them.:)
