(1935-    ) UK author – not to be confused with the US writer Brenda Cooper – almost exclusively of novels for Young Adult readers, beginning with David's Ghost (1980). Of her tales of genre interest, the Simon Jones sequence, beginning with The Black Horn (1981), is fantasy; Earthchange (1985) describes a Ruined Earth and the attempts of its young cast to build a new life; Ashar of Qarius (1988) pits its slightly saccharine child protagonists against an Alien on a planet from which their parents have mysteriously vanished. Her later works continue in the same modestly rewarding vein. [JC]
